  • M8 westbound Junction 8 Baillieston on slip from A8/A89 Coatbridge Road
  • M73 northbound link road to M8 westbound at Baillieston Interchange
  • M8 westbound Junction 9 Springhill/Easterhouse on slip road
  • M8 westbound Junction 10 Easterhouse (Glasgow Fort) off slip road

Signed diversion routes will be in place during the closure. Road users are encouraged to plan ahead and check Traffic Scotland prior to travelling.

These closures are to ensure road user and road worker safety whilst we undertake essential traffic sensor installation, resurfacing and lining works. The works have been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption to traffic.

The works will be carried out by Scottish Road 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, Traffic Scotland, Glasgow City Council, Amey South West Unit and the emergency services.

Please note, all works are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
