|Route outline (key)|
The C9 is a lengthy route which runs across East Renfrewshire from Barrhead to Eaglesham. It starts at a roundabout with the A736 in Barhead, and runs south east along Aurs Road. After leaving the town behind, it passes under the railway, and winds between reservoirs to reach the B769. There are current plans to upgrade this section of the route, removing a series of tight bends, along with a new railway station and housing developments as part of the Glasgow City Deal. A short multiplex carries the two routes over the M77, and then the C9 resumes, following Barrhead Road through the south of Newton Mearns to reach the A77. Here there is another multiplex, heading north between traffic lights, before the C9 starts the final, longest leg. Now following Eaglesham Road, it heads east to Mearns, where road realignments see it turn south onto Mearns Road, and then west again onto Humbie Road. This turns south west and passes through a series of 3 roundabouts where the road has been realigned to pass under the A726. The route then comes to an end on the B767 in Eaglesham.
