De­lays warn­ing over M8 works

Paisley Daily Express - - It’s Back To The Classroom For Mums And Dads -

Mo­torists are be­ing ad­vised of po­ten­tial de­lays as resur­fac­ing work takes place on a busy stretch of mo­tor­way.

Scot­land TranServ, on be­half of Trans­port Scot­land, will carry out resur­fac­ing on 570 me­tres of the M8 mo­tor­way east­bound at junc­tion 29, be­low the Arkle­ston to Hilling­ton foot­bridge.

Work starts at 8pm on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 13 and will run till 6am on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 16.

The £150,000 scheme will ad­dress is­sues with sur­face de­fects and struc­tural crack­ing.

Alan Mur­ray, Scot­land TranServ’s prin­ci­pal roads de­sign en­gi­neer said: “This is a very busy stretch of mo­tor­way, with more than 100,000 ve­hi­cles us­ing the M8 ev­ery week­day.

“Work will be car­ried out overnight, but, be­cause of the depth of the resur­fac­ing project, it will be nec­es­sary to leave the newly-laid road for a longer pe­riod to cool and har­den.

“This will mean lane re­stric­tions be­ing im­ple­mented dur­ing the day too.”

Traf­fic will be re­stricted to two lanes and the hard shoul­der, and have a re­duced speed limit dur­ing the day on Satur­day and Sun­day. At night, only the hard shoul­der will run.

West­bound mo­tor­way lanes will be un­af­fected, but mo­torists us­ing the mo­tor­way in the junc­tion 29 east­bound area over the week­end should ex­pect mi­nor de­lays.
