In October 1978, the Crossbasket to Auchinraith stretch of the East Kilbride A725 Expressway opened to the public. Pictured here in this aerial photo sent in by Robert Brownlie, is that High Blantyre stretch of new road.
What I noticed is that there were no slip roads at High Blantyre on to Douglas Street and of course the shiny, new Jerusalem houses looking very white at just 6 or 7 years old.
On social media:
Think the new slip roads opened about 94/95
