|Route outline (key)|
The C141a starts on the B7076 outside the old Blacksmiths shop at Gretna and heads east through Springfield to the English Border. The old road through the village now TOTSOs with the new connection to the motorway, and then meets it again at a roundabout at the far end, where it turns left to cross the border at Plump Bridge. The new road has another roundabout in the middle, where the southbound offslip from the A74(M) meets it. It is not at all clear which route the C141a follows. Ordinarily the older road would be the presumption, but as it clearly carries a number which is a later addition to the original list, it could follow the new road. The length stated in the council list suggests it is unlikely to include both pieces of road.
