Pan-Lanarkshire orbital transport corridor

£190m project links M74 in the south with M80 in the north

As part of City Deal the 'Pan-Lan' will create new and upgraded transport infrastructure in North Lanarkshire. This, together with similar road infrastructure investment planned within South Lanarkshire will support the economic regeneration of the area.

It is recognised that for the Glasgow City Region to be economically competitive, improvements to the transport network are needed.

The 'Pan Lan' proposes road improvements which will join the M74 to the M80 on a route through Ravenscraig. 

The improved connectivity delivered by the 'Pan-Lan' will:

  • Help to stimulate business investment
  • Create new employment opportunities
  • Improve access to jobs in North Lanarkshire and the wider Glasgow City Region. 

The 'Pan-Lan' is made up of the following three projects:
