BEAR Scotland, Transport Scotland’s operating company, is set to resurface 0.6 kilometres of the M80 between Junctions 7 and 8.

The work will take place across two nights, from 19:30 until 06:00, on Thursday 29 February and Friday 1 March.

For the safety of workers and road users, the southbound M80 will be closed at junction 9.

Traffic will be signposted to leave the M9 at Junction 7 and continue onto the M876 eastbound before turning at the M876 Junction 3 (Bowtrees) to travel westwards. Traffic will then leave the M876 at Junction 1 and join the A883 and A803, before re-joining the M80 at Junction 7 southbound.

This diversion will add approximately 20 minutes and 12.1 miles to affected journeys.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These resurfacing works will improve ride quality and safety for motorists using this section of the M80.

“A carriageway closure is essential for the safety of workers and road users, however we’ve scheduled the works overnight to minimise disruption.

“If you do need to travel during these works, please allow some extra time for your journey.”

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and other relevant stakeholders to share information about the project in advance.
