Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential overhead sign gantry refurbishments on the M8 eastbound between Junctions 16 and 17 from Saturday 25th March until Sunday 26th March 2023, between the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night.
This scheme will benefit vehicles using this route each day, by improving signage on the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.
The work will be carried out using two overnight road closures and a signed diversion will be in place. We thank road users for their patience and co-operation while this essential work takes place.
Traffic will be diverted as follows: eastbound traffic will exit the M8 at Junction 18, travel along North Street, St. George’s Road (A804), Garscube Road (A81) and then Dobbie’s Loan (A804) to re-join the M8 eastbound at Junction 16.
Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works.
Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
