The work, between junctions 25 and 25a, near the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and the Braehead shopping centre in the Southside, started in mid March - and should end soon.

Motorists have had to keep an eye on their speed while using the stretch of road for the last couple of months.

A 40mph speed limit has been used throughout the works, with average speed cameras being used to make sure that people stick to the new limit.

Work is being carried out between junctions 25 and 25A on the M8.

Lanes have also been closed, meaning that motorists can be stuck in queues during busier periods on the M8.

The £2 million scheme aims to ensure the reliable operation of the trunk road and reduces the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.

The refurbishment works are being undertaken on three bridges between Junctions 25 and 25A of the westbound M8 motorway and include bridge deck waterproofing, concrete repairs, parapet upgrades, drainage improvements and resurfacing works.

When the scheme was originally announced, Amey, which is carrying out the works, said that the roadworks would end on June 30.

However, that date could be pushed back depending on several factors.

A spokesperson for Amey said: “Maintenance on the M8 between Junctions 25 and 25A is still scheduled to complete by the end of June 2022.

“However, please note that the successful delivery of maintenance schemes is dependent on favourable weather conditions and any episodes of unfavourable weather could impact the scheme construction programme.”
