As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road maintenance programme, Scotland TranServ is supervising essential upgrading work to the cope and parapets on the M8 Kingston Bridge South Approaches.
Following successful completion of the westbound phase prior to Christmas, Raynesway Construction Ltd will now replace the edge coping, vehicle barriers and expansion joints on the East bound carriageway on the south approach structure. Traffic management will be implemented on the M8 eastbound carriageway from Sunday the 07th January 2018 with planned overall completion expected in March 2018.
In order to work as safely and efficiently as possible, it will be necessary to narrow the lanes on the bridge through the work zone with a reduced speed limit of 40mph.
To implement the narrow lanes and erect a temporary vehicle barrier, overnight closures of the east bound carriageway will be implemented on Sunday 7th to Wednesday 10th January. Traffic will be diverted onto local roads before joining the M8 eastbound carriageway beyond the works area.
