The M74 northbound carriageway between Junction 6 Hamilton/Motherwell and Junction 5 Raith will be closed overnight for two nights, on Wednesday 29 November and Thursday 30 November.
The closures have been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption to traffic and are required to ensure road user and road worker safety whilst these traffic sensor installation works are undertaken. The road will close at 8pm and reopen at 6am the following day.
As a result, the following slip roads will also be closed:
- M74 northbound Junction 6 Hamilton on slip road
- M74 northbound Junction 6 Motherwell on slip road
- M74 northbound off slip road to Hamilton Motorway Services
- M74 northbound on slip road from Hamilton Motorway Services

Signed diversion routes will be in place during the closures. Road users are encouraged to plan ahead and check Traffic Scotland prior to travelling on these evenings to check their route.
The works will be carried out by Scottish Roads 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, North Lanarkshire Council, South Lanarkshire Council, South West Unit and Police Scotland.
All works are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
