Provanmill

The B808 was a short B-road to the north east of Glasgow city centre. It started on the A80 Cumbernauld Road at Millerston, west of Stepps, and headed west along Royston Road through Blackhill and Germiston to terminate on the A803 Castle Street just to the north of where the Townhead Interchange on the M8 is now. Although the eastern end was originally relatively rural in character, the city soon spread out along the route creating the entirely urban environment of today.

The route survived at least until the 1974, when it is still shown on the OS One Inch Map but has since been declassified, although it is still fully open to traffic throughout. It was probably downgraded with the opening of the M80, which provided a better route for longer distance traffic, and so reduced volumes on the more suburban routes. A short section towards the eastern end of Royston Road, at Provanmill, has since become part of the B765.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Glasgow (St Rollox) - Millerston
