Essential Maintenance on the M8 Eastbound and J13 starts Sunday 24th April

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential maintenance on the M8 eastbound at Junction 13 in two phases. Phase One will run from Sunday 24th April until Friday 29th April 2022, with work taking place between the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night. Phase Two will run from Tuesday 3rd May until Saturday 7th May 2022, with work taking place between the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night. 

The work will be carried out using the following closures and diversions: 

  • Total closure of the M8 eastbound carriageway between the Junction 13 slip roads. Traffic will be diverted from the M8 via the Junction 13 eastbound off-slip to follow the M80 northbound, before exiting at Junction 2 to join the M80 southbound. Vehicles will exit at Junction 1 and re-join the M8 Eastbound at the junction 13 on-slip. 
  • Total closure of the M8 Junction 15 slip roads. Traffic will be diverted via the A8, join the A80, follow Provan Road and re-join the M8 at the Junction 13 on-slip. 

Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works. 

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