More than £10 million is to be invested in South Lanarkshire’s roads overbthe next year, according to the council.
Around £7.5m will be spent on resurfacing programmes with a further £2.6m to be spent on patching, preventative maintenance, footways, structures, traffic signals, lighting and investment with North Lanarkshire Council at Horsley Brae, according to Scottish Construction Now.
Gordon Mackay, head of roads and transportation services, said: “This is a significant investment in improving roads and roads infrastructure across the area during the next financial year. Commuters and other road users alike will benefit from these improvements.
“Our team carry out detailed analysis of the condition of our roads and following this we then prioritise the order in which the work needs done which enables us to come up with our annual programme.
“It is likely that road users will have noticed a change in the condition of some roads as the winter months have not been kind to many surfaces, but we believe this programme will help improve many roads across South Lanarkshire.”
