To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with Transport Scotland regarding the junction at Shawhead/Kirkshaws in Coatbridge.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 13 September 2018
I am aware that the member has raised concerns about the performance of the junction with Transport Scotland and that their contractor, Scottish Road Partnership (SRP), is reviewing potential alterations that may assist the movement of vehicles at this junction.
I understand that Transport Scotland recently wrote to the member to outline that once final design work and checking processes associated with undertaking amendments is complete, a programme of works will follow to implement any necessary changes at the junction of the A725 with Kirkshaws Road/ Hagmill Road.
