Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, is undertaking a package of essential overnight maintenance on the eastbound M8 between Junctions 18 and 16, which will be carried out in multiple phases throughout 2024.

Phase One will take place from Sunday 28th January until Friday 15th March 2024 from 8pm* until 6am, each night. *Subject to traffic volumes.

This scheme is to enable the next phase of repair of the M8 Woodside Viaducts Junctions 16-17.

The work will be carried out using weeknight closures only with signed diversion routes in operation.  

  • Eastbound M8 traffic will be directed off the M8 at Junction 18 onto St George’s Road, following to Garscube Road, onto Dobbie’s Loan, then back onto the M8 at Junction 16 (Craighall). 
  • There will be eastbound slip road closures at Junctions 19 and 18, with traffic being directed to North Street and then St George’s Road to join the main diversion, as outlined above. 

Access for emergency service vehicles will not be maintained throughout these works.

Please plan your journey and allow extra time for travel through the signed diversion.

PLEASE NOTE: Vehicles entering the LEZ as part of the diversion must follow the diversion signage at all times. Any vehicles which deviate from the published diversion route may be issued with penalty charge notice(s) from Glasgow City Council should they be captured out with the agreed diversion route.

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
