Added on 20 November 2016
M74 JUNCTION 10 TO 11 SOUTHBOUND
Resurfacing work is to begin on the M74 southbound at Nethan Viaduct near Lesmahagow on Monday 21 November.
Scotland TranServ will carry out the works as part of Transport Scotland’s ongoing maintenance programme until the morning of Saturday, 26 November.
To protect the safety of operatives and road users, a full closure of the southbound carriageway will be in place overnight from 8.00pm to 6.00am between Junction 9 and 12 and a local diversion route will be implemented via the B7078.
A daytime lane closure of the southbound carriageway between 6.00am and 8.00pm will also be required on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Andy Fraser, operating company representative, Scotland TranServ said:
“These essential repairs will help improve the road surface of the M74 between Junctions 9 and 10 and benefit those using the route for years to come.
“We are making every effort to minimise disruption to road users and our teams will be on site and working overnight when traffic flows are lighter.”
Advanced warning signs will be positioned on the approach to the works to inform road users that the works are taking place.
Motorists should plan ahead and leave plenty of time for their journeys. They can keep up to date with real time traffic information and diversion routes by visiting www.trafficscotland.org or following @TrafficScotland on Twitter.
