Overnight Maintenance

ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE ON A8 LANGBANK TO WEST FERRY COMMENCES 18th JANUARY

Essential maintenance on the eastbound A8 at Langbank Roundabout to the M8 Junction 31 at West Ferry, and the eastbound A8 at Woodhall to Langbank, will take place overnight between Monday 18th January to Saturday 23rd January 2021. The work will be undertaken between 8pm and 6am, each night.

These two schemes, with a combined value of £80,000, will benefit around 6,596 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in future.

  • A8 eastbound Langbank Roundabout to M8 Junction 31 West Ferry will take place between 8pm and 6am from Monday 18th January to Wednesday 20th January.
    • During this work the A8 eastbound carriageway will be closed for the extent of the scheme. Local access will be maintained up to Langbank Roundabout.
  • A8 eastbound Woodall to Langbank will take place between 8pm and 6am from Wednesday 20th January to Saturday 23rd January 2021.
    • During this work the A8 eastbound carriageway will be closed for the extent of the scheme. Local access will be maintained up to Woodhall Roundabout.

For both closures, the same signed diversion route will be in operation.

Eastbound traffic will be diverted at Newark Roundabout to travel south on  A761 Clune Brae and Kilmalcolm Road, Port Glasgow. From here, vehicles will continue through Kilmacolm, Bridge of Weir and Brookfield to join the B789 to Barrochan Interchange. Traffic will then travel north on the A737 to the St James Interchange at the M8 Junction 29, and then follow existing signage to continue on the eastbound A8.

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