Structural Investigations


Structural investigations on the M8, between Junctions 15 and 27, are taking place from Monday 15th March until Sunday 4th April 2021. Work will be carried out by Amey on behalf of Transport Scotland overnight during the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night.  

This scheme, with a value of £200,000, will benefit vehicles using this route each day, by ensuring the efficiency of the transport network and the safety of its users. These investigations will inform future maintenance schemes that aim to safeguard the longevity of key structures.  

The work will be carried out using lane closures along the M8 eastbound and westbound carriageway local to the various structures on the M8 corridor between Junction 23 and Junction 27Some evenings will require off-slip and on-slip road closures at Junctions 23, 24, 25, 25A, and 27 with a maximum duration of three nights at each respective slip road. All required closures will have a signed diversion route in operation.
