M8 Junctions 13, Provan to Junction 12, Riddrie (eastbound)
IMPROVEMENT WORKS ON EASTBOUND M8 JUNCTIONS 13 TO 12 COMMENCES MONDAY 18th JULY
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 eastbound M8 between Junctions 13 (Provan) to Junction 12 (Riddrie) and associated slip roads. The work will be carried out in two phases.
The scheme, with a value of £306,000 will benefit around 33,307 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the road surface and reducing the need for further, more extensive maintenance in future.
Phase One will take place between Monday 18th and Friday 22nd July 2022, between 8pm and 6am, each night. The road will re-open as normal outwith these times with traffic management lifted by 6am Friday 22nd July. Work will take place on lanes 1, 2 and 3 of the eastbound M8 Junction 13 with a signed diversion in operation.
Eastbound traffic will be diverted via the northbound M80 to leave at Junction 2 and will then travel via the B765 Robroyston Road to Royston Road, to join the B765 Provanmill Road. From here, vehicles will join the A80 Cumbernauld Road to the B765 Gartloch Road and re-join the eastbound M8 at Junction 12.
The eastbound Junction 13 on-slip road will be closed, with a diversion via Provan Road, Cumbernauld Road and Gartloch Road to join the M8 at Junction 12.
PLEASE NOTE: The phase one diversion routes are unsuitable for abnormal loads. Emergency services vehicles will not be affected – special arrangements will be in place to grant access through the works area during phase one.
Phase Two will take place continuously between 8pm on Saturday 6th August and 6am on Monday 8th August 2022, on the M8 Junction 13 eastbound on-slip road. The signed diversion route for this work will be the same as for Phase One at this location.
There will also be overnight maintenance on the M8 Junction 12 off-slip road between 8pm on Saturday 6th August and 6am on Sunday 7th August, and from 8pm on Sunday 7th August to 6am on Monday 8th August. A signed diversion will be in place for this work via M8 to Junction 11 and returning westbound.
The link road from Provan Road to Maxwelton Road will be closed northbound for the duration of Phase Two, with a signed diversion in place via Provan Road, Cumbernauld Road and Provanmill Road. Southbound traffic will be maintained with a system of temporary traffic lights and convoy working.
Please Note: The Phase Two diversion routes are unsuitable for abnormal loads. Emergency service vehicles will not have access to the eastbound Junction 13 on-slip road during phase two and will be required to follow the signed diversion.
Our operatives follow strict physical distancing and hygiene protocols throughout the programme, in line with the current 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.
