Five overnight closures of A7071 northbound and southbound carriageways between B7071 and Raith roundabout

The A7071 northbound and southbound carriageways between the B7071 Hamilton/Bothwell Road and Raith roundabout, will be closed for five nights from 8pm to 6am, starting Monday 29 November for essential road stud, line marking and other maintenance works.

As a result, the following slip roads will be closed:

  • A725 northbound off slip road to A7071/B7071
  • A725 northbound off slip road to M74 and Raith roundabout
  • A7071 on slip road to M74 northbound at Junction 5 Raith

The closures are required to ensure road user and road worker safety while essential road stud, line marking and other maintenance works are undertaken and have been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption to traffic. The road will reopen at 6am each morning.

Signed diversion routes will be in place for both motorway and non-motorway traffic.

The works will be carried out by Scottish Road Partnership on behalf of Transport Scotland to maintain the integrity and safety of this route. The works have been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, North Lanarkshire Council, South Lanarkshire Council and the emergency services.

All works are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
