Kingston Bridge: M8 Newton Street On Ramp Refurbishment

Cope & Parapet Works

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, is proposing essential bridge refurbishment of the Kingston Bridge at the M8 Newton Street On Ramp.

The works will involve the removal of the original cope and parapet and the replacement of these with a design complying with modern standards.

We expect this extensive refurbishment programme will take up to 12 weeks to complete, commencing in late Autumn/Winter.

Traffic management solutions

In order to complete these works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a series of traffic management solutions including running narrow lanes between 0600 and 2200.

Full overnight closures of the structure are also proposed between 2200 and 0600 each evening.

Greenoakhill Woodland – Update February 2017

We have received an update from the Forestry Commission/Central Scotland Green Network Trust:

The current aim is for the Forestry Commission to get more detailed information out in the press by March 2017.

The attached Maps GC001-SK01 show what will be accessible in the short term which is the path network south of the M74.

Some work has been started north of the M74 but this will not be accessible until the next phase is complete.

The next phase of works is shown in map Greenoakhill Phase 2B. This needs some refinement so details may change in the coming months.

Both maps displayed can be accessed in full-size by clicking the links below:
