Essential resurfacing work aimed at fixing potholes starts on Wednesday night on the M8 Eastbound Junction 15 to 14.

Work will take place each night until the early morning of Tuesday, June 20.

Darren Mitchell, Scotland TranServ’s project manager on the scheme said: “The M8 is one of Scotland’s busiest motorways and that’s why it is important that we deliver this essential programme of tangible, long-term benefits. “

Working overnight will allow us to deliver this project with minimal disruption. We always have the safety of our workers and motorists foremost in mind.

“Only once the motorway is sufficiently quiet will we install traffic management to begin our programme of overnight resurfacing work.

“Diversions will be lifted, and the road returned to normal operation by 6am each morning.”

The M8 Westbound won’t be affected.
