Investigation Works

M8 WOODSIDE VIADUCT: A81 GARSCUBE ROAD (SOUTH) INVESTIGATION WORKS COMMENCE 1st AUGUST

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are undertaking a week of utility investigation works on the southbound A81 Garscube Road from 5am on Monday 1st August until 6am on Monday 8th August 2022

The work will take place on the A81 Garscube Road, between St George’s Road and Dobbie’s Loan and will be in place 24/7, with a signed diversion route in operation.

This closure is required to excavate Garscube Road to allow for investigation work into utility services at this location. Due to the depth of the excavation no vehicle access will be possible. Emergency service vehicles and HGVs will also be required to use the diversion route.

Southbound traffic intending to travel via Garscube Road will be diverted via Queen Margaret Drive to Great Western Road. From here vehicles will continue via Cowcaddens Road and can access the eastbound M8 at the A804 Dobbie’s Loan junction. Local business access will be maintained via the M8 and Cowcaddens.

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

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