A725 Night closures

A series of nighttime road closures are planned this week for Glasgow Road sliproad with the A725 EK Expressway at the Auchinraith Roundabout, Blantyre.

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential maintenance on the A725 at Glasgow Road Eastbound from Monday 21st March until Saturday 26th March 2022, between the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night. 

This scheme, with a value of £50,000, will benefit around 37,000 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future. 

Work will be carried out using a full closure, with a diversion route in place. 

Diversion route is as follows:  

  • Traffic travelling Eastbound will exit the A725 via the off-slip onto the roundabout and take 3rd exit onto the B7012 Main Street, Blantyre.  Traffic will travel straight through mini roundabout before taking 1st exit at the following roundabout (junction with Udston Road).  Vehicles will then turn left at the traffic lights onto A724 Glasgow Road before taking 1st exit at the roundabout and continue on the A724.  Vehicles to take 2nd exit on next 2 roundabouts to continue on A724.  Vehicles to take 2nd exit at Roundabout (junction with Whistleberry Road) and then turn right onto A725 Eastbound Slip to re-join main carriageway.  

Operatives will follow strict physical distancing and hygiene protocols throughout the programme, in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 guidance. 

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
