Closure will affect staff at NHS Lanarkshire headquarters in Fallside Road, Bothwell.

Residents have been warned to expect disruption when a busy road in Bothwell is closed for repairs next week.

The closure of Fallside Road will affect people who live in the Farm Court estate as well as workers at NHS Lanarkshire’s headquarters.

South Lanarkshire Council said the road between Ashley Drive and Farm Court will be off limits from Monday, October 17, to Friday, Ocdtober 21, to allow resurfacing work.

Drivers will be diverted via Uddingston. The closure will affect many motorists who use Bothwell motorway services as a short cut to and from the M74.

Separate work has already meant a contraflow on Fallside Road for the last 10 days.
