Glasgow/Edinburgh M8: 3 Weeks of Major RoadWorks 2006-11-02Posted by clype in Glasgow, Intolerance, Scotland.
Drivers face three weeks of disruption during major roadworks to rebuild one of Scotland’s busiest stretches of motorway.
A 40 mph speed limit will be imposed on nearly a mile of the M8 between JUNCTION 2 (Claylands), just south of Newbridge, and the Almond River bridge, on the edge of Edinburgh.
The work starts on 2006-11-10, with delays expected to peak at weekends when the motorway will be reduced to one lane each way.
The 2.2 million GBP project involves reconstructing the road from its foundations; it carries more than 44 000 vehicles/day.
The westbound on-slip and eastbound off-slip at junction two will be closed for the first week, with a diversion in place.
Contractors warned drivers to leave ‘lots of extra time’ during the work.
