The B752 was a short link road in the Lanarkshire town of Airdrie. It started on the A8 (now A89) Clark Street and headed south along South Biggar Road. After less than half a mile it ended on the A73 Carlisle Road.
Immediately to the north, North Biggar Road (now the B8053) is also simultaneously marked as a B road on some old maps, although the route is not numbered before the 1938 revision of the OS Six Inch Map (published 1947) when both sections are marked as the B8053, so it is unknown whether the B752 was ever extended northwards, or if the route was only extended after being renumbered.
Owing to the short length of the route, it is not known how long the B752 lasted. It is still shown on the 1927 revision of the MOT map, but is not identified on the 1932 Ten Mile Map, although this is probably due to its short length. A number of maps dated to 1937-39 show the B752 at Saltcoats in Ayrshire, however, meaning that the Airdrie route was renumbered prior to this. The A8 was rerouted to the south of Airdrie in c1930, thus putting the route of the original B752 out of zone. Although this did not lead to a wholesale revision of numbering in the area, the proximity of the B8053, if indeed it had been numbered separately, may have meant that the B752 ceased to exist in Airdrie at this point. By the end of the 1950s the road was unclassified and remains so.
