M80 Robroyston Resurfacing

1LIGHTSScotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland will carry out overnight resurfacing of the M80 Northbound carriageway at Junction 2 between Monday 29th May and Tuesday 6th June.

The £351k project will address potholes and structural cracking on a 1.4 kilometre stretch of the motorway in the Robroyston area.

Rajan Singh, Scotland TranServ Assistant Engineer said:

“This project will help to address issues with potholes and structural cracking on one of Scotland’s busiest commuter routes, connecting communities in East Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire, Falkirk and Stirlingshire with Glasgow; this is an important road and to minimise disruption to road users we’re working overnight to deliver tangible
benefits to around 25,000 drivers every day.

“Following consultation with a number of authorities and Police Scotland, the project has been specifically scheduled ahead of the main tourism season, as the M80 is also a main thoroughfare for visitors to Scotland heading for Perthshire and the Highlands from a base in the city, and directly from Glasgow Airport.”

In order to carry out the project as quickly and safely as possible it will be necessary to implement temporary traffic management between 8pm and 6am, each night from Monday 29th May until Tuesday morning 6th of June. A two phased diversion route will be implemented in order to divert traffic around different stages of the resurfacing work.

1.Motorway

 

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland will begin a programme of resurfacing on the A77 Southbound Kilmarnock Bypass.

Work to rectify potholes and address deeper structural cracking will take place from Friday 19th May until Monday 22nd May. Further to consultation with local authorities and Police Scotland, the project was rescheduled to avoid disruption to those attending the Scottish Grand National in April.

Darren Mitchell, Scotland TranServ’s Assistant Engineer said:

“We are working hard to improve the road surface and structure of the A77, consulting with local authorities, Police Scotland and a number of other agencies as we plan our programme of works, minimising disruption to local communities and businesses.”

The £257k project will see the resurfacing of 1.1km of trunk road, delivering tangible, long-term benefits to local commuters and freight traffic alike. In order to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to close this section of the A77 over one weekend, from 8pm on Friday 19th May until 6am on Monday 22nd May.

On behalf of Transport Scotland, Scotland TranServ will resurface a significant stretch of the A75 between Barharrow and Sandgreen from Friday 19th May to Thursday 1st June.

The project to resurface 650m of carriageway completes a scheduled programme of nearly 5 kilometres in the Gatehouse of Fleet area, bringing the total investment locally to around £3.5million.

Alan Murray, Scotland TranServ’s Principal Roads Design Engineer said:

“Over and above this significant £670,000 investment, this project marks the current completion of a multi-million pound improvement programme in this particular stretch of the A75, one of South West Scotland’s longest roads. Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland is delivering tangible, long-term benefits to local communities, businesses and freight traffic using this vital economic route.”

In order to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible, and because of complexities around any potential diversion routes it will be necessary to implement a convoy traffic management system. It will also be necessary to close the A75’s junctions with the B727 and A755, with local diversions in place.

Works will take place from 8pm on Friday 19th May until 6am on Thursday 1st June 2017, with the convoy system operating throughout. Local signed diversions will also be in place.

A77 Raith Burn to Shawhill Road Surface Improvements

1.AR - ROLLER

Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out road surface improvements on the A77 from Raith Burn to Shawhill Farm near Dutch House Roundabout from the 15th to the 18th May.

The £210k project will see the resurfacing of nearly 900m of the A77, addressing existing issues of potholes and structural cracking.

Darren Mitchell, Scotland TranServ’s Roads Engineer said:

“This short works scheme will deliver tangible, long-term benefits to improve the quality of road surface for those using this important route. In using a deeper resurfacing treatment to make sure the road lasts longer, we have to leave it for longer to cool and harden, before it can be safely opened to traffic.”

In order to complete the programme of work as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement overnight closures of the road. These closures will therefore take place:

  • Each night from 8pm to 6am Mon 15th to Thurs 18th May
  • Also, single lane closures from 6am until 8pm Tuesday 16th to Friday 19th May

The additional single lane closures are to allow a deeper resurfacing treatment to cool and harden, ensuring the long-term integrity of this particular section.

The A77 road surface improvement project is one of a number of schemes being scheduled by Scotland TranServ to deliver long-term benefits to commuters, local communities and businesses across the region.

M8 Barrier Replacement Switches to Eastbound

1SparksThe M8 barrier replacement project will now switch its focus to the eastbound carriageway of the motorway.

The 8 week programme of work to replace nearly 2 kilometres of barrier began on 23rd April. It is operating each night from Sunday to Thursday, for a period of 8 weeks.

Laura Gray, Scotland TranServ’s Deputy Planned Maintenance Manager said:

“These barriers are coming towards the end of their useable life and will now be replaced. In order to keep disruption to an absolute minimum for commuters, freight traffic and the community, we’ve scheduled work during times of lowest possible traffic flow.”

Carrying out work on the eastbound barriers will require the motorway to be closed in this direction with one of the westbound lanes also closed.

Traffic management will be in place from 20.00 to 06.00 on each evening of work. Those using the M8 overnight should follow signed diversion routes.

The £500,000 M8 safety barrier improvement project is one of a number of such schemes being scheduled by Scotland TranServ to deliver long-term benefits to commuters, freight traffic and tourists using one of Scotland’s busiest transport corridors.

Howwood Road Surface Improvements

Overnight WorkScotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland is combining two road surfacing programmes into one £600k scheme in order to keep disruption to a minimum for Renfrewshire motorists.

The trunk road management company will use a single closure to address issues of potholes and structural cracks, while also installing high friction surfacing to help improve road safety on this 2.5km stretch of the A737 between Howwood and Roadhead Roundabout.

“This is an important programme scheduled in consultation with local authorities and emergency services to reduce disruption to the local community. This short works scheme will deliver tangible, long-term benefits in the quality of road surface for those using this important economic route daily.”
