Road users are advised that the M8 eastbound and westbound carriageways at Junction 8 Baillieston, between the off-slip and on-slip roads, will be closed overnight for two nights consecutively, commencing Monday 09 October 2023.
The works will take place in two phases as follows, ensuring only one direction of the M8 carriageway, eastbound or westbound, is closed at any given time:
Phase 1: The M8 eastbound carriageway at Junction 8 Baillieston, between the off-slip and on-slip roads, will be closed overnight on Monday 09 October (1 night) - between 8pm to 6am the following day.
Phase 2: The M8 westbound carriageway at Junction 8 Baillieston, between the off- slip and on-slip roads, will be closed for one night on Tuesday 10 October (1 night) - between 8pm to 6am the following day.
All slip and link roads around Baillieston interchange will remain open.
The closures are required to ensure road user and road worker safety whilst bridge inspections are undertaken. Works have been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption to road users.
Signed diversion routes will be in place during the closures. Road users are encouraged to plan ahead and check Traffic Scotland prior to travelling on these evenings to check their route.
The works will be carried out by Scottish Roads Partnership on behalf of Transport Scotland to maintain the integrity and safety of this route. The works have been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland and Police Scotland.
Please note, all works are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
