Union Canal bridge

The B810 is a link road in the eastern suburbs of Falkirk. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its present number by 1932.

The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the A803 (former A9) in Polmont, not too far west of M9 J4. The route heads south along Station Road, initially as a fairly modern link road with few buildings facing directly onto the road. A long tree lined curve takes it over the Polmont Burn, and through a signalised junction, after which it becomes more suburuban in character with houses facing onto the road. It then goes over the Edinburgh to Falkirk line next to Polmont Station.

After passing a handful of shops, the Union Canal is crossed and then the road bears to the right into Brightons to reach a T-junction on the B805. There's a short multiplex west along Redding Road before the B810 turns left at a roundabout onto Newlands Road and regains its number. The road then passes to the south of Polmont Young Offenders Institutuon and climbs through Reddingmuirhead and becomes Sheildhill Road to briefly run between fields. Development is slowly encroaching, however, and the houses soon come back as it enters the village of Shieldhill. A short distance further on and the end of the road is reached, at a TOTSO on the B8028.

History

Originally unclassified in 1922, it is first marked on the 1932 OS 10 mile map. There has only been one significant change to the route since then, and that is at the northern end, where it formerly followed the winding Marchmont Avenue to the west of its current route along Station Road. The northern section of Station Road is shown as complete on the 1969 OS 1:10,000 sheet, with the southern end in place on the 1974 OS One Inch Sheet.
