M8 White Cart Viaduct closures this week

29th Jul 2020

Resurfacing work on the M8 at the White Cart Viaduct at Glasgow Airport will see road closures from tonight, Wednesday 29 July.

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will start the work tonight (Wednesday) from 10.00pm and is aiming to be finished by Saturday morning.

The essential trunk road maintenance will follow strict physical distancing protocols in line with the Scottish Government’s Covid-19 guidance.

Peter McCann, Scotland TranServ’s major bridges manager, said: “This is an important section of the trunk road network, and as such is used by emergency services, freight, retail and delivery traffic as part of their essential working.  It is vital that we complete these works in order to maintain road safety. Works will be carried out overnight in order to reduce the impact on communities and businesses as they recover at this time.”

There will be overnight closures at the following times:

* 10pm Wednesday 29 July until 6.00am on Thursday 30 July 2020 – M8 eastbound works.

* 10pm on Thursday 30 July to 6.00am on Friday 31 July – M8 westbound works;

* 10pm on Friday 31 July until 6.00am on Saturday 1 August – M8 westbound works.

Diversions will be in place throughout the series of overnight closures. Special arrangements will be made for emergency service vehicles.
