M8 Eastbound Junction 11 Overnight Resurfacing

December 03, 2018

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will begin the overnight resurfacing of 400m of the M8 Eastbound between Junctions 11 and 10.


In order to complete these works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a series of overnight road closures between Monday 3rd and Friday 7th December.


Anthony Chambers, Scotland TranServ’s Lead Design Engineer on the project said:


“Scotland TranServ has worked closely with local authorities, emergency services and key stakeholders to carefully plan these works for minimal disruption to commuters and businesses using this very busy section of the M8. With more than 100,000 vehicles using the motorway daily it was important that we scheduled the programme to limit the impact on the travelling public.


“This £127k project will be carried out using a series of overnight closures. Local diversions will be clearly sign-posted throughout. Due to the extended shopping times in the run up to Christmas, we won’t begin implementing traffic management until 10pm each evening, and again not until traffic flows are sufficiently low.”


In order to carry out the works as quickly and safely as possible it will be necessary to implement full overnight closures of the M8 during the following times:


  • 10pm Monday 3rd to 6am Tuesday 4th December

  • 10pm Tuesday 4th to 6am Wednesday 5th December

  • 11pm Wednesday 5th to 6am Thursday 6th December

  • 10pm Thursday 6th to 6am Friday 7th December


Scotland TranServ would advise drivers to please allow some additional time for their journeys, and to check or follow @trafficscotland on Twitter for live trunk road information before beginning their journey.

Another Result by Garrowhill Community Council

October 28, 2017

Due to an approach by a resident in December of last year, who was fined for parking on double yellow lines on the much too extended bus stop, we contacted SPT with a view to having this reduced in length.


They acknowledged it was too long for the buses used now, so they then involved Glasgow City Council who agreed to have this carried this out. We had been warned at the time that there would be a delay in implementation but It was eventually completed on 26 October.


No more parking fines on this area.
