Weekend Closure

ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE ON A898 AT ERSKINE BRIDGE COMMENCES FRIDAY 7th MAY

UPDATE (07/05/21): Planned maintenance on the A898 at Erskine Bridge scheduled to commence from 10pm this evening has now been postponed due to adverse weather conditions. New dates will be announced in due course.

Essential maintenance on the off-slip from A898 Erskine Bridge to A82 northbound will take place under a 24/7 closure between Friday 7th May and Monday 10th May 2021. Work will be carried out continuously from 10pm on Friday evening with the route re-opening to public at 6am on Monday morning.

The works involve repairs to the bridge deck, re-waterproofing and resurfacing.

This work requires a full weekend closure of the A898 off-slip road to A82 North, with a signed diversion route in operation.

Traffic will be diverted via the A898 off-slip to the A82 southbound. At Mountblow Rd, traffic will take the off-slip road to cross Mountblow overbridge where traffic will join the A82 in a northerly direction and diversion will end. Please note, this diversion is not suitable for HGVs.

HGVs will also be diverted via the A898 off-slip road onto the A82 southbound and will continue on this route for four miles. At Kilbowie Roundabout, traffic will take the fifth exit to re-join the A82 northbound where diversion will end.

Our operatives will follow strict physical distancing and hygiene protocols throughout the programme, in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 guidance.

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