South Lanarkshire's four infrastructure projects represent a total investment of £166m:
Cathkin Relief Road
This new £16m single-carriageway road was officially opened on Friday 24 February 2017. It runs for a mile between Mill Street and Burnside Road. Several road junctions have also been upgraded, existing woodland areas have been complemented by extensive areas of tree and shrub planting and enhanced sustainable travel options delivered.
The £62m Stewartfield Way project continues to develop and as well as improving traffic flow, through capacity improvements, the project will deliver active travel infrastructure, improvements to public transport and low carbon vehicle infrastructure.
The widening of Greenhills Road / A726 is a £25.7m project which will see two sections of road transformed into dual carriageways. Existing junctions will also be improved along with active travel infrastructure and improvements to public transport.
Community Growth Areas
Four community growth areas have been identified in Newton, Hamilton, Larkhall and East Kilbride. This £62m scheme is delivering a number of individual education, transport and community infrastructure projects to enhance the lives of the people living in each of the four areas and beyond.
