These remarkable photos date from 1981, as construction commenced on the third and final phase of the East Kilbride Expressway from Auchinraith down to Raith.
In particular, these photos are of Bothwell Bridge, looking towards Hamilton. If you look closely, you’ll see the excavators beginning to undertake work at the former Lido Park, removing the former beautiful park to make way for the new Expressway.
Other photos show the abutments at the opposite side, holding the elevated road to Hamilton.
More photos of this work coming later in the week.
