The M74 Completion is a genuine, multi-agency partnership setup to deliver 8 kms of new motorway which links the M74 with the M8, west of the KingstonBridge, Glasgow. This provides the missing link in the strategic motorway network and involved GlasgowCity(as Appointed Agent & Employer for Works & Services), South Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire Councils, Transport Scotlandas Scheme Promoter and a private sector consortium, Interlink M74 JV.
It provides an alternative to the M8, significantly improves journey times for businesses and opens up brownfield and under-utilised sites in the West of Scotland for new development. It will deliver a wide range of immediate and longer term benefits. These include new jobs, assisting local community regeneration, improving road safety and reducing traffic congestion. Associated environmental benefits will include air quality improvement, new habitats and cleaning up contaminated land. From the start, there has been a strong emphasis on partnership working and this has been crucial in the successful delivery of this complex scheme, 8 months early and around £20m below budget.
