The roadworks will be starting this weekend.

Essential road resurfacing works are being carried out on the M77 on-slip to the M8 eastbound, and the M8 eastbound inner mainline carriageway at Junction 22, from Sunday until Monday, December 12, between the hours of 10pm and 6am, each night.

This scheme will be improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.
