Route outline (key)
B8050 Bearsden – Milngavie
Heading east on Baljaffray Road

The B8050 is a semi-rural but chiefly suburban link road on the north-western edge of the greater Glasgow area.

The route starts at the Langfaulds roundabout junction with the A810. This roundabout was constructed in Summer 2011, replacing the simple T-junction that had previously been here. We travel in a generally easterly direction along Baljaffray Road through the Baljaffray area of Bearsden. For the most part it is a reasonably wide S2 road, albeit penned in by high hedges and speed is restricted to 40 mph at times.

The B8050 then crosses the A809 at Baljaffray roundabout and becomes Craigdhu Road as it enters Milngavie. At a roundabout junction with Hunter Road it turns right and continues, still named Craigdhu Road, towards the town centre, where it turns sharp right down Park Road to terminate at a signalised junction with the B8030.

History

The route was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932.

As an important link across the north of the Glasgow urban area, the road has seen some improvements over the years. Most recently, construction of the Langfaulds roundabout was completed in August 2011, but this was just the latest of many other works. Although precise dates can't be given at present, the route has been improved as follows:

  • a long realignment to avoid a bend at Windyhill Golf Course;
  • a slight realignment southwards where the road passes through Baljaffray roundabout;
  • the avoidance of Chestnut Lane at the entrance to Milngavie;
  • the use of Park Road to reach the B8030 and so avoid the town centre (the road originally ended at the northern end of Main Street).
