Delays warning over M8 works
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.
