M8 Structural Investigations – Scotland Transerv

M8 Structural Investigations

Structural investigation works will be carried out this weekend to confirm the condition of motorway assets including bridges and retaining walls, between Junctions 16 and 19 of the M8 Westbound.

On behalf of Transport Scotland, within this section of the M8, Scotland TranServ will undertake routine testing on 7 bridges structures and three retaining walls, as part of an overall M8 strategy.

These works will require a lane closure on the weekend of Friday 31st January until Monday 3rd of February.

Traffic management will therefore be implemented from the M8 Westbound Junction 15 (Stirling Road) on ramp during the following times, depending on vehicle volumes:

  • 10pm on Friday the 31st of January to 6am on Monday the 3rd of February

Drivers are asked to allow some extra time for their journey, with local diversions in place. Live trunk road updates are available at trafficscotland.org, or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
