Time teams to dig up sites along planned extension to M74

ARCHAEOLOGISTS are being brought in to carry out excavation work on sites located along the proposed M74 extension.

They will dig up the city's past ahead of construction work which will end a 40-year wait and complete the motorway.

Work could start as early as July ahead of construction work starting on the "missing link"next year.

Teams will work at a number of urban, industrial and abandoned brownfield locations along the five-mile route stretching from Cambuslang in Lanarkshire to Glasgow's Kingston Bridge.
