A726 Eaglesham roundabout to Righead eastbound East Kilbride weekend closure
11 February 2014
Over £220,000 will be invested in essential road improvements on the A726 trunk road at Eaglesham Roundabout to Righead Eastbound in East Kilbride this weekend.
The resurfacing works will be carried out by Scotland TranServ, on behalf of Transport Scotland, over the weekend of Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 February 2014.
To protect the safety of motorists and roadworkers a total road closure will be implemented on Friday evening from 8.00pm and removed at 6.00am on Monday morning before peak time traffic. A diversion will be in operation where Eastbound traffic will follow West Mains road B761 then East Mains road to Whirlies roundabout to Whitemoss / Birniehill to Queensway.
Advanced warning signs will be positioned on the approach to the works to inform road users that the works are taking place and road traffic will be diverted via the local roads network.
Russell Rennie, contract director, Scotland TranServ said:
“We are making every effort to minimise disruption to road users therefore our operatives will be on site and working continuously over one weekend when traffic flows are lighter.
“Delays are expected to be minimal however I would urge motorists to leave plenty of time for their journeys and check the Traffic Scotland website and Twitter feed for real time traffic information.”
