EC urged to put brakes on M74 project - Scotsman.com News
The Greens claim ministers and the companies involved in the tender process broke two key European Union directives and are calling on the EC to intervene and halt the project.
The official complaint is the latest stage in what has been a protracted battle between the environmental lobby and the Scottish Government over the £500 million project....
The extension is designed to link the M74 to the M8, west of the Kingston Bridge in Glasgow. The five miles of motorway are estimated to cost about £500 million.
The project has been backed by business groups, local authorities in the area and the current Scottish Government – it was previously supported by the Labour-led Scottish Executive.
