Motorists warned of overnight works on M74

28th August 2019

M74 works

Anyone planning journeys in the Glasgow area are advised of possible overnight delays for four nights from September 2nd.

The M74 northbound carriageway between Junction 4 Maryville and the M73 southbound merge, near Junction 3A Daldowie, will be closed.

Safety is paramount for all projects

Carriageway resurfacing and bridge repairs will take place each evening from 8pm to 6am, with drivers urged to avoid the area if possible.

Signposted diversions will be in place for four nights via the M73 northbound link road to Junction 2 Baillieston before returning to the M73 southbound and M74 northbound at Junction 1 Maryville.

Access to the M74 will be maintained in both directions throughout the planned works.

Transport Scotland has apologised to travellers affected by the closures but stressed the necessity of doing so in order to safeguard the wellbeing of engineers working in the area.

Motorists who are planning journeys during the affected period are asked to leave additional time to reach their destination and to plan their journeys in advance, taking into account the necessary diversion.

Ellie Baker, brand manager at FCS Scotland, adds: “The works are all taking place overnight and so traffic volumes should be lower. However, drivers who are travelling in the area in the coming days should appreciate and understand the importance of keeping workers safe.”
