|Route outline (key)|
The B760 is one of Greater Glasgow's many de-classified routes.
The road ran north off Cambuslang High Street (then A74, now A724) along Bridge Street. Its bridge over the Clyde, Cambuslang Bridge, is now sadly dilapidated and the road is haphazardly blocked off using concrete slabs. There's an adjacent, ex-railway bridge for pedestrians - modern-day road traffic uses the A763 Clydeford Road Bridge upstream.
Cambuslang Road (despite the fact it doesn't get to Cambuslang any more) is more or less on its original line through what was countryside in the B760 days but is now a modern-looking industrial estate. It gives way to Fullarton Road which has been straightened and dualled more recently and even now meets the M74 at junction 2A, that motorway's temporary terminus for many years, after which it reaches London Road (today's A74 routing but then A732). Even in B760 days there was then a short multiplex west before the road turned right into Causewayside Street for the final section up to Tollcross Road (formerly A721 but now unclassified). Tollcross was still a town in its own right at the time of classification, before urban Glasgow swallowed it up.
It was the importance of this route that led to the early swallowing up of the B760 number, fully replaced with A763. When Cambuslang Bridge became unusable that road took a new route over the new Clydeford Road bridge and now only the smallest stub of it (back in Cambuslang) lies on the original B760 line.
