M8 Bishopton Resurfacing – Scotland Transerv

M8 Bishopton Resurfacing

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will this month resurface 1km of the M8 Westbound between Old Greenock Road and North Porton Road near Bishopton.

In order to complete this £218k programme of work between Junction 30 and 31, as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to implement a weekend contraflow system, with a closure of the Junction 30 Westbound on-slip.

Adam Sarwar, Scotland TranServ’s project lead on the scheme said:

“We’ve been waiting on a suitable window to carry out this short programme of work, keeping disruption to the thousands of commuters and businesses using this route every day, to a minimum. Developers constructing the new interchange at Bishopton for Dargavel Village and associated motorway junctions have recently completed their works.

“Scotland TranServ has also been in liaison with local authorities, emergency services and other key stakeholders to carefully schedule these works out with busy holiday periods and the peak Festive shopping season. This is an essential programme of work that will deliver around a kilometre of new surface for this section of Scotland’s busiest motorway. We would like to thank drivers for their patience while this programme is completed.”

Scotland TranServ will deliver this project under a weekend contraflow and closure of the westbound M8 onslip at Junction 30 near Bishopton. Works will be carried out during the following times:

  • 8pm on Friday the 8th and 6am on Monday the 11th of November

 Motorists are advised to allow plenty of additional time for their journeys. Special arrangements have been made for emergency service vehicles, however no additional provision will be made for windfarm traffic.
