Overnight Resurfacing M80 Junction 1 – Scotland Transerv

Overnight Resurfacing M80 Junction 1

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface approximately 1.4km of the M80 Northbound from Junction 1 to 2, between Blochairn and Royston.

In order to complete this £295k programme of work as quickly and safely as possible, with minimal disruption, it will be necessary to implement a series of overnight closures of the northbound carriageway between the evening of Tuesday the 22nd and the morning of Sunday the 27th of October.

Omar Sarwar, Scotland TranServ’s Assistant Network Design Engineer said:

“This is one of the busiest motorway stretches in Scotland, and we’ll be working through the night in order to reduce the impact on the thousands of commuters and businesses using this key route into Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire and Stirlingshire every day.

“Because of the scale of the resurfacing project, the work will be undertaken through a programme of five overnight closures, which will be implemented when the volume of vehicles is sufficiently low.

“Scotland TranServ has been working in consultation with a number of local authorities, emergency services and key stakeholders to carefully schedule these works. The project has been planned, where possible, to avoid impacting drivers returning from major events.”

To protect the safety of our workers and the travelling public, it will be necessary to complete this programme of works under a series of overnight closures, with traffic management implemented during the following times:

  • 10pm on Tuesday 22nd until 6am on Wednesday 23rd October
  • 10pm on Wednesday 23rd until 6am on Thursday 24th October
  • 12am on Friday 25th until 6am on Friday 25th October – in order to avoid disruption to football traffic
  • 10pm on Friday 25th until 6am on Saturday 26th October
  • 10pm on Saturday 26th until 6am on Sunday 27th October

Drivers are asked to allow some additional time for their journeys, with a short diversion route in place during these overnight closures. Specialist access is being provided for emergency services vehicles.
