Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are undertaking the next phase of propping works on the M8 Woodside Viaducts on the A804 Phoenix Road, directly below the Viaducts from Monday 17th October 2022. Phoenix Road will be closed eastbound to facilitate the next phase of propping to the eastbound viaduct at two locations adjacent to Phoenix Road, and will remain in place until work at this location is completed.
The initial work will allow the completion of groundworks to facilitate the propping installation at the eastbound bridge supports. This will allow completion of ongoing repair works. The works will extend onto the carriageway there is no other safe option for vehicles to pass.
A signed diversion route will be in operation while this work is taking place.
Eastbound traffic intending to use the eastbound A804 Phoenix Road will be directed on to St George’s Road and then Garscube Road.
Vehicles will still be able to access the westbound M8 on-slip road via Phoenix Road, and the westbound A804 is unaffected by this closure.
Please note, emergency service vehicles will also be required to use the diversion route.
Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
