Farme Cross is a signalised fiveways junction at the western end of the A724. The A749 is the main through route, heading north across Dalmarnock Bridge towards Glasgow city centre, and south into the centre of Rutherglen. The A724, meanwhile, is one of Glasgow's historic radial routes which heads south east to Hamilton. Indeed this, along with the northern arm of the A749 was the original route of the A74 to Carlisle between 1922 and 1936. Dalmarnock Road to the north is an S4 carriageway, with the other two A road arms having two approach lanes and a single departure lane, as indeed does the unclassified Baronald Road which serves the industrial area to the north east. The fifth arm is Lloyd Street, a short dead end serving another industrial area, and a modern block of flats.
