Redding Road, Polmont

The B805 is an urban link road east of Falkirk. The road was originally the northern end of the A801 and gained its current number in the 1970s when that road was rerouted to serve the new M9.

The road starts at Bog Roundabout on the A9 in Laurieston. There's a brief D2 section south to the next roundabout, where we cross the A803, after which the road narrows. We then run alongside the Edinburgh to Stirling railway line across a roundabout and a burn and finally cross the line in Westquarter. The Glasgow to Edinburgh via Falkirk line is then crossed and we pass a Tesco before going over the Union Canal.

The road now skirts the southern edge of Polmont. We pass the YOI and then meet the B810 at a roundabout, after which there's a brief multiplex until that road regains its number by turning left. We continue vaguely southwards through Maddiston, after which a brief rural section takes the road to its terminus at the large Bowhouse Roundabout on the A801 and B825.
