M74 junction 6 southbound road improvements

16 January 2014

Over £320,000 is being invested in vital improvements to the M74 southbound road surface at Junction 6 beginning 24 January.

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, is carrying out essential repairs to the route including resurfacing of the southbound carriageway and renewal of bridge joints.

The works will be carried out overnight over 10 days and will involve a number of traffic management measures between 8.00pm and 6.00am including single lane and total closures throughout the works.

Russell Rennie, contract director, Scotland TranServ said:

“These essential repairs will help improve the road surface of the M74 Junction 6 and benefit those using the route for years to come.

“We are making every effort to minimise disruption to road users therefore our operatives will be on site and working overnight when traffic flows are lighter. Delays are expected to be minimal however I would urge motorists to leave plenty of time for their journeys.”

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.
