M74 Completion Project

Winner of Construction News' "Best Project over £50m Award", the M74 Completion Project is the largest roads project ever to be carried out in Scotland, providing the missing link across a vital part of West Scotland's motorway network.

Client: Glasgow City Council
Value: £445 million
Location: Glasgow

Working as part of the Interlink M74 Joint Venture, we constructed a five mile stretch of road to join the motorway from the Fullarton Road Junction, near Carmyle, to the M8 motorway west of Kingston Bridge.

Our joint venture team also constructed:

  • A dual three-lane carriageway with hard shoulders on each side and dual two-lane motorway connections to the M8.
  • A new two way junction at Kingston.
  • New four-way junctions at Cambuslang Road and Polmadie Road.
  • The existing junction at Fullarton Road was upgraded to a four-way junction.
  • 13 bridges were built to allow the new motorway to cross the M8, existing rail lines, the River Clyde and local roads.

With such a huge undertaking at hand, the M74 project has been hugely considerate of the environment, regenerating disused land and old industrial sites.
