Further road works on M8 Glasgow Airport
05 March 2012
Drivers using the M8 near Glasgow Airport can expect delays from Friday 9 March, when essential repairs to the White Cart Viaduct on the M8 are due to restart.
As part of a £30m investment programme, essential strengthening works are being carried out on the M8 White Cart viaduct, which carries the M8 over the White Cart Water immediately to the south of Glasgow Airport, and is a principal route to the airport.
From 8.00pm on Friday 9 March, one lane will be closed in each direction between J27 and J28 and this contraflow traffic management system is likely to remain in place for around 10 weeks.
The westbound on-ramp from J27 and eastbound on-ramps from J28 and J29 will also be closed.
Work will continue on the carriageway during the night (8.00pm – 6.00am), when two lanes will be closed in each direction.
During this period, all visitors to the airport are encouraged to be patient, plan your journey wisely using the Traffic Scotland website www.transportscotland.gov.uk, consider alternative modes of transport and listen for travel updates on the radio.
- Please note: Average speed cameras will remain in operation until the works are complete to ensure the safety of the workforce, the travelling public and to help reduce congestion.
