Bike 'n hike on new M74

12 May 2011

As the new M74 extension nears its June opening, Sunday 22nd May is the day to explore the route on foot or by cycle and raise money for charity at the same time.

The M74 Project Partners and the Contractor are making the M74 Completion route available on Sunday 22nd May 2011 to allow a one off opportunity to see the route prior to opening by cycling, walking and running along the route.

Prior to the June opening of the motorway a charity event is being held on Sunday 22 May involving walkers, runners and cyclists.

The event will start at the west end of the new motorway, at the Shields Road Car Park, Scotland Street, Glasgow and take participants onto the motorway to do an "out and back" walk, run or cycle to Polmadie Road (4 km round trip) or over the full length to Fullarton Roundabout (14km round trip).
