West Mains Road, East Kilbride

The B761 is a short link road in the Lanarkshire town of East Kilbride. The road came into existence with the construction of the A726 bypass in the 1950s and part of the B761 follows the original line of that road.

The road starts at a roundabout on the A726 in the College Milton area of town. The road heads north to reach what was a roundabout but now the B761 continues as a two-way road along the southern side. This is where the former A726 comes in from the left and we now follow that along the winding - but obviously upgraded - West Mains Road.

We cross the Kittoch Water and continue along a road that wouldn't look out-of-place in any New Town. The B783 then turns left at a roundabout. The old A726 bears off left just afterwards along a route now closed to traffic and we continue southeastwards along new-build (which actually looks older than the section before that existed prior to the New Town). At another roundabout an unclassified dual carriageway turns off right to the town centre and then we end at the next roundabout on the A725 eastern bypass.
