M73 northbound closed for one weekend

This will be from 8pm on Friday 19 May until 6am on Monday 22 May.

This means there will be no access from the M74 northbound to the M73 northbound from junction 4 Maryville. There is already no access from the M74 southbound to the M73 northbound after the link road was closed on 15 May for around three weeks.

Signed diversions will be in place from M74 northbound or southbound to the M73 via junction 5 Raith, A725 northbound to Shawhead junction and A8 westbound to Bargeddie roundabout for access to Baillieston roundabout and M8 westbound or M73 northbound.

The closure is for surfacing works and installation of motorway gantries.

Transport Scotland Project Sponsor Graeme Reid said:

“We recognise this closure will cause inconvenience and we thank road users for their patience while these essential works are undertaken.

“I would urge people to plan their journeys in advance, allow extra time and consult the Transport Scotland and Traffic Scotland websites for further information on traffic restrictions as part of the project.

“The good news is we are approaching the removal of restrictions from the motorway network and road users will begin to realise the full benefit this project will bring.”
