Lanarkshire lorry fire locks down M74 causing major delays
A LORRY fire on the M74 is causing major delays this morning.
The vehicle last night burst out in flames on the northbound carriageway near junction 14 at Crawford, Lanarkshire,
Fire crews have tackled the blaze but the burnt out vehicle is still blocking the road, which remains closed.
A diversion is in place, with northbound traffic exiting the M74 at Junction 15 onto the B7076 before rejoining the motorway at Junction 14 – but drivers have been advised to expect delays.
A cop spokesperson said: “Officers of #RPWest currently dealing with an incident involving LGV which caught fire on northbound M74 Junction 14 Crawford.
“The Scottish Fire Service have extinguished the fire however the northbound carriageway is still closed at Jct. 15 to enable the vehicle to be recovered.”
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service has been contacted for comment.
