Scottish government funds Glasgow hard shoulder running

The Scottish government has provided £725,000 of funding for a hard shoulder running scheme for buses along the northbound M77 between Kilmarnock and Glasgow.

Transport minister Keith Brown said the investment was part of the government’s commitment to progressing the project to a detailed design phase.

“In the current economic climate, where we must find ways to make best use of our existing network, this scheme is just one of many novel ideas we are trialling to make our roads as efficient as possible,” he said. “Wider work is also underway in order to identify the most congested parts of the central Scotland motorway network and look to see how Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) can ensure better and more efficient journeys for road users.”

Transport Scotland said it will work closely with industry partners during this stage to ensure the scheme can be constructed when capital funding becomes available.
