Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are undertaking essential overnight investigation works as part of the M8 Woodside Viaducts repair scheme. These require closures of the A82 Great Western Road flyover between St George’s Cross Underground station and the Junction 17 on-slip of the M8 westbound at Stow College - and lane restrictions at the Cowcaddens Road/West Graham Street junction - from Monday 28th November until Friday 2nd December 2022, between the hours of 10pm and 6am, each night.

These investigations will inform future stages of work on the M8 Woodside Viaducts. The work will be carried out in phases, initially using a full overnight closure of the eastbound and westbound Great Western Road, with a signed diversion route in operation.

Eastbound traffic will be directed to leave Great Western Road via Maryhill Road and will join St George’s Road before continuing on to Garscube Road. From here, traffic will use the Cowcaddens Road/West Graham Street junction to continue their journey eastbound.

The second phase of the works requires a closure on the straight-ahead lane from Cowcaddens Road to West Graham Street. While this is in place, traffic will be directed north on Garscube Road and will then travel west on A804 Phoenix Road and then north on Maryhill Road to return to Great Western Road via Napiershall Street. At the same time, the Rose Street entrance to Cowcaddens Junction will also be closed, with traffic being diverted via Buccleuch Street, Dallhousie Street and Renfrew Street to then continue their journey via Cambridge Street.

Depending on the progress of the initial phase, the second phase is likely to commence for three nights from either Wednesday 30th November or Thursday 1st December 2022. At times during this phase there will be lane restrictions in force on the Cowcaddens Road/West Graham Street junction, but traffic will still be able to travel through without the need for a further diversion.

We thank road users for their patience and co-operation while these essential investigation work takes place.

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