Thistle supporters heading to this Saturday’s Ladbrokes Premiership fixture against Motherwell should note that there is expected to be significant traffic delays on the road to Fir Park.
As part of the M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements Project, the M74 will be closed, between Junction 4 Maryville and Junction 5 Raith, to traffic in both directions from 8pm on Friday until 6am on Monday 21st November. This closure is required to safely demolish Bothwellpark Road Bridge.
Diversion routes will be in place via the A725, A8 and the M73, although Transport Scotland is warning all road users to expect major delays on all surrounding routes as a result of the M74 closure. Diversion routes can be found here
All Jags fans are encouraged to leave plenty of time for their journey to Motherwell to ensure they don’t miss a minute of action in what should be another exciting Ladbrokes Premiership match. If you are travelling by supporters’ bus please note the departure time as it may be earlier than usual.
