ALTHOUGH no events are taking place in Clydesdale, commuters are being warned to allow more time to travel due to the Commonwealth Games.

The Glasgow 2014 Triathlon is being held at Strathclyde Country Park on Thursday, July 24, and Saturday, July 26, and will directly affect local people travelling to and from Hamilton and Motherwell.

Although no roads will be closed in South Lanarkshire, the majority of internal access roads in Strathclyde Park - including the main access from Motherwell - will be closed on both event days.
