The M77 motorway is a major westbound link in the west of Scotland, connecting the cities of Glasgow and Prestwick. It runs for 47 miles and is the main route for traffic travelling between the two cities. The M77 was constructed in the late 1960s and officially opened in 1969. It is the only major motorway in Scotland that runs parallel to a coastline.

The M77 is well maintained, having undergone significant upgrades and modernization works since its opening. In 2005, a 1 billion upgrade program was completed, which reconfigured the route, improved the junction and widened the carriageway.

The safety statistics for the M77 motorway are impressive. There were 19 road deaths on the M77 between 2013 and 2017, a decrease of almost 32% compared to the previous five-year period. Over the same period, there has been a 43% reduction in reported accidents. Additionally, the motorway has recently been improved with new cycle lanes, pedestrian crossings and average speed cameras in a bid to further reduce traffic casualties.
