Physical Regeneration

Route / M74

The completion of the M74 Motorway in 2011 was critical in helping Clyde Gateway deliver on its long-term targets around jobs and investment, with many brownfield sites that have lain vacant and derelict for many decades now being much more accessible than before.

The M74 Motorway has brought major economic and social benefits to businesses, communities and industry to the Clyde Gateway area, particularly around our business parks at Clyde Gateway East and Rutherglen Links.

The Shawfield masterplan incorporates proposals for the Shawfield Regeneration Route (SRR).

It is designed to open up a large tract of the site for a variety of predominantly industrial uses as well as aiding traffic calming on the existing Glasgow Road / Rutherglen Road thoroughfare. The new SRR will allow Sustainable Urban Drainage provisions to be incorporated across the area and will also be integrated with a green network strategy aimed at enhancing pedestrian and cycle movements through the site.

Road Construction Consent has been granted for the first of 3 stages. Stage 1 of the SRR will run south east from the existing junction at Queensferry Street and is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
