Resurfacing of A8 Eastbound Approach to Woodhall Rbt – Scotland Transerv

Resurfacing of A8 Eastbound Approach to Woodhall Rbt

As part of Transport Scotland’s strategic trunk road management programme, Scotland TranServ will be carrying out overnight road surface improvements to the A8 Eastbound approach to Woodhall Roundabout in Port Glasgow.

Works will be delivered under a series of five overnight closures of the trunk road, with local diversions in place throughout.

Tony Chambers, Scotland TranServ’s project design lead on the programme said:

“In order to deliver this £155k road surface improvement programme on behalf of Transport Scotland, we will need to close the A8 trunk road in this area. To keep disruption to a minimum for commuters and businesses, works have been scheduled for overnights. Traffic management will only be installed after 10pm each evening and be lifted prior to 6am the following morning.

“As part of our extensive consultation programme, Scotland TranServ has scheduled these works in liaison with the local authority, emergency services and key stakeholders. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local community for their patience while these essential resurfacing works are delivered as part of Transport Scotland’s wider improvement programme.”

In order to complete this short programme of overnight works as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to close the A8 Eastbound Approach to the Woodhall Roundabout during the following times:

  • 10pm Monday 10th to 6am on Tuesday 11th February
  • 10pm Tuesday 11th to 6am on Wednesday 12th February
  • 10pm Wednesday 12th to 6am on Thursday 13th February
  • 10pm Thursday 13th to 6am on Friday 14th February
  • 10pm on Friday 14th to 6am on Saturday 15th February

Local diversions will be in place throughout the overnight works programme. Drivers are advised to allow some extra time for their journeys. Live trunk road updates are available by visiting, or by following @trafficscotland on Twitter.
