The M876 is set to benefit from resurfacing improvements, with Transport Scotland’s operating company, BEAR Scotland, planning four nights of roadworks from 28 March.

Resurfacing works are planned on the M876 from junction 1 Denny westbound between the hours of 19:30 until 06:00 each night from Tuesday 28 March to Friday 31 March.

A diversion route travelling westbound on the M876 will begin at the junction 1 Denny westbound off-slip. The diversion will then go via the A883, A803 and then back onto the M876 at junction 7 Haggs at the M80 southbound.

This will add an estimated 13 minutes and six miles to affected journeys.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

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

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will significantly improve safety for motorists on this section of the M876.” 

“Road closures are essential to ensure the safety of workers and road users, however we’ve planned the works to take place overnight to minimise disruption and will do all we can to complete the project as quickly as possible.”
