M898 Overnight Resurfacing
As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ is proposing the overnight resurfacing of the M898 Southbound.
In order to complete these works as quickly and safely as possible, with minimal impact on commuters and businesses, we are proposing the closure of the southbound carriageway on the nights of Thursday 15th, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th of August.
Omar Sarwar, Scotland TranServ’s Assistant Engineer said:
“Scotland TranServ has been working in consultation with local authorities, emergency services and key stakeholders to carefully schedule this short programme of resurfacing works to be delivered with minimal disruption to commuters, businesses and holidaymakers.
“This is an important trunk road, connecting Dunbartonshire, Argyll and the Highlands with Glasgow and the busy Central Belt. Balancing the needs of maintaining the carriageway while limiting the impact on motorists is a challenge. To minimise disruption to the travelling public the short programme has been scheduled for after the school holidays.”
To complete the works as efficiently and effectively as possible, it will be necessary to close the trunk road during the following times:
- 10pm on Thursday 15th until 6am on Friday 16th August
- 10pm on Friday 16th until 6am on Saturday 17th August
- 10pm on Saturday 17th until 6am on Sunday 18th August
Local diversions will be in place throughout these overnight works. Drivers are advised to allow some additional time for their journey. Live trunk road information will be available by visiting trafficscotland.org or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
