East End Regeneration Route (EERR)/The Clyde Gateway
This new road, costing between £80million and £85million will ultimately provide a route from the extended M74 through the east end of Glasgow to the M8/M80 junction at Provan Road and will be built and funded by Glasgow City Council.
Known during its planning phase as the East End Regeneration Route (EERR), the road is being constructed in separate phases.
Phase 1 is in the Oatlands area and was built and opened in 2007 as part of the development of new housing by Bett Homes and was officially re-named as New Rutherglen Road.
Phase 1a (pictured above) opened in 2010 and runs from Polmadie Road, adjacent to Junction 1a of the M74 to Shawfield Stadium, Scotland's largest venue for greyhound racing.
Phase 2 is the longest section of the EERR. Work began in January 2010 and was completed and opened in April 2012. This phase is almost entirely located within our area, and heads north from the M74, crossing the Clyde at the existing Rutherglen Bridge, and on through Dalmarnock passing the Commonwealth Sports Arena and Celtic Park. Phase 2 connects with the existing Parkhead Bypass.
The section of the EERR that consists of Phases 1a and 2 has now officially been renamed as 'The Clyde Gateway'.
Phase 3 of the EERR will run from the Parkhead Bypass to the M8. This section will be developed at the completion of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
