Many only use the left lane for the M3 in summer, because they can't read, causing long tailbacks. Widening to 4 lanes from J3 to here commences in Feb 2008.

Here's the 'use both lanes' signs. The lights are about to change back to green, and you can see the delay they've caused.

Well, it snowed, and was slightly misty with failing light, leading to the interesting effect as you can see.

Fingers crossed you'll get in the correct lane. In my opinion this is possibly the most confusing sign on the motorway network.

Although the picture is distorted, this show the A74(M) & the hills in good stead. The Borders are very nice however not many Dual Carrageways. Very much Mitsubishi Evo IX territory the Border area.

A74 After the start of the D3M - Coppermine - 3561.JPG
A74 After the start of the D3M

Here is the A74 after the D3M started. This section was rebuilt in the early 1990's as part of the first phase of the A74 Upgrade. Once the HA finally start on the cumberland gap & it completion sometime in 2008/10, this section would have been waiting for the motorway to come to it section for 17-19 years. The Leech Line upgrade isn't as bad as it has taken the same time to upgrade 450 miles of railway & the Cumberland gap is only 6 miles. As Pathetic as the A6144(M)

A74(M) before J16

Here is J16 of the A74(M). After this Juction is the newest section of the motorway, built in 1999. Some of the sign around the juctions still say Glasgow, Edinburgh A74 depite the fact the A74 here has been gone from this area since 1999. Still it is a much better road now. Especially if you are coming from the South East, the Motorway has cut off about 30 mins from the journey as there are three lanes & no buses & right turns.
