From : 19th March 2012

To : 23rd March 2012

Posted : 15th March 2012





Works Commencing on Monday 19 March for 4 Consecutive Nights


Resurfacing works will be carried out on the A702 Trunk Road at Abington, where the A702 meets the M74 (Junction 13).  The works will commence on Monday 19 March and will be carried out over 4 consecutive nights between 21:00hrs and 06:00hrs


The scheme represents an investment of £100,000 by Transport Scotland and includes the resurfacing of two roundabouts, either side of the M74 and the link road between them.


The works will be carried out in two separate traffic management phases.


The first phase will be carried out on the Monday and Tuesday nights when the link road between the roundabouts and both the M74 northbound slip roads at Junction 13 will be closed.


All M74 traffic wishing to use the northbound exit to the A702 at Junction 13 will be advised to leave at Junction 14 (Elvanfoot). Traffic wishing to use the northbound on-slip from the A702 will be diverted onto the M74 via Junction 14 (Elvanfoot). There will also be no access to Junction 13 from the B7078. All traffic on the B7078 will be diverted via Junction 12 (Millbank).


During this phase the link road and the west roundabout will be resurfaced.


The second phase will be carried out on the Wednesday and Thursday nights.  During this phase resurfacing of the east roundabout will be carried out under 4-way traffic control to ensure access is maintained to the M74, A702 and Abington Services. 


The M74 southbound off-slip will be closed on both nights with traffic being diverted via Junction 14 (Elvanfoot). The M74 southbound on-slip will be closed on the Thursday night with traffic diverted onto the A702 via Crawford to Junction 14 where the traffic will rejoin the M74 southbound.


Minor delays are expected, however BEAR Scotland will make every effort to ensure that any delays are kept to a minimum. 


Ian Stewart, Operating Company Representative for the South East Unit, said:


These works will be carried out at night when traffic flows are less for the safety of the workforce and to minimise the disruption to the travelling public as a result of the various closures.  


“We regret that some motorist’s journeys will be affected by these works and would advise them to allow additional time and plan ahead.”

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.


The works are being carried out by Aggregate Industries on behalf of BEAR Scotland.  Works have been planned in consultation with Strathclyde Police, Traffic Scotland, Autolink, South Lanarkshire Council and Abington Services
