POOR weather is causing “extra slow” traffic for morning rush-hour commuters.

Traffic Scotland urged drivers to “take care” as traffic slowed down on the M74 northbound just after 7.30am.

The team said: “Busy and heavy traffic from Uddingston before J4 to M8 merge at Kinning Park, poor weather causing extra slow traffic this morning, take care.”

Traffic on the M80 has also been busy as usual, particularly northbound from junction 4 Mollinsburn to junction 6A Castlecary.

The same applies to the M77 northbound.
