|Route outline (key)|
The A929, formerly a road of about 15 miles in Angus, has been cut back considerably in recent years from its original route. It now starts on the A991 (in two different places, according to most maps - it then runs along Victoria Road or King Street) in the centre of Dundee before heading north out of town along Albert Street and Forfar Road, to end on the A972 Dundee Bypass.
Originally, the A929 continued north of Dundee via Todhills to Forfar where it ended on the A94 in the town centre. The southwest section of the Forfar bypass was given the A929 number on construction (with the original road into town renumbered A932). However, building of bypasses sounded the death knell for the A929, as the A90 was extended along it in the 1990s once it had become part of a complete dual carriageway for traffic to Aberdeen.
