Transport Scotland continues M74 investment
Transport Scotland has announced investment of a million pounds in the coming financial year to resurface the M74 between junctions 6 and 12.
The first stage of the programme, which is being carried out by Scotland Transerv, will begin at the end of this month and see more than £250,000 of repairs being carried out across four locations on the M74.
Traffic management and diversions will be in place throughout the week to allow the work to go ahead safely, with further information to be circulated in advance of specific schemes to keep motorway users informed.
Gordon Wilson, contract director for Scotland Transerv said: “Across the South West, Scotland TranServ on behalf of Transport Scotland is continuing to improve the trunk roads network. This is one of the most important roads in Scotland, and we hope that following our programme of work, commuters, tourists and freight drivers will value these improvements for many years to come.
“We are doing all we can to keep disruption as a result of the work to a minimum and motorists can keep up to date with real time traffic information by visiting the Traffic Scotland website and following their Twitter feed.
“Advanced warning signs will also be in place to inform motorists that work is underway.”
