M8 and M80 Overhead Sign Gantry Maintenance – 15th July to 8th August 2021

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential overhead sign gantry refurbishments on the M8 and M80 from Thursday 15th July until Sunday 8th August 2021, between the hours of 8pm and 6am.
