The B7029 is a largely urban road in Lanarkshire with a short break in the middle. It was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932.

The road starts at a roundabout in Mossend near Bellshill, signed towards New Stevenston. It first goes south, very shortly passing under a railway bridge carrying the Argyle and Shotts Lines before swinging east to cross over another railway bridge, this time spanning the Argyle and Motherwell to Cumbernauld Lines. New Stevenston is then reached, and here there is a very brief (less than 150 m-long) multiplex with the B799 before our route, now signposted Carfin, continues towards that place, ending its first section where it meets the A723.

The way between the two sections of the B7029 is via a 650  stretch of the A723, with the second section of our route starting at Cleekhimmin roundabout on the southwest side of Carfin. From here we set off again, briefly heading northeastward before TOTSOing right at a light-controlled crossroads (the straight-ahead road is the B7066). At one time B7029 traffic would have reached this crossroads much more directly from the A723 via New Stevenston Road, but that residential road has now been severed for vehicular traffic at its northwestern end.

Our route is now signposted Cleland. After crossing over another branch of the Argyle Line we embark on a semi-rural stretch (a large oxygen plant to the right, cows to the left) and pass the entrance to Dalziel Park Golf and Country Club. More open country brings us to Cleland village, at the far end of which is Cleland station (on the Shotts Line), from where we follow the railway for a further 800  to Bellside and the eastern terminus of the B7029 at a roundabout junction with the A73.
