TRAVEL: Autumn Network Maintenance Programme

On behalf of Transport Scotland, Scotland TranServ is undertaking a concentrated, programme of trunk road maintenance.

The project, currently in its third week, involves the cleaning and repair of signs, jetting of gullies, the tidying of verges, cutting of grass, clearing of vegetation and relining of road markings. Where possible, works are carried out overnight to avoid disruption to commuters and businesses using these busy routes.

Andrew Adam, Scotland TranServ’s Operations Manager said:

“This concentrated effort is part of a massive programme of work across areas in South West Scotland. Our Operations teams are carrying out essential maintenance to the trunk road network, junction by junction, night after night.”

Where possible, Scotland TranServ is scheduling works to have minimal impact on our customers across the region. Lane closures and diversions are essential to help protect the safety of our workers and motorists using our trunk roads.

Paul Lynch, Scotland TranServ’s Network Manager added:

“Across the network, our teams are working tirelessly to help improve the look of routes our customers use every day. We would like to thank drivers for their patience while these essential works are carried out. Already, some of the country’s busiest roads including our sections of the M8, A737 and most of the M77 have recently benefitted from these concentrated efforts.and will continue into the coming months”

The programme of works include:

Monday 16th – M8 Westbound Junctions 10 – 12

Tuesday 17th September – M8 Westbound Junctions 10 – 12 and M74 at Junctions 6, 10 and 11

Wednesday 18th – M8 Eastbound Junction 12 – 10 and M74 at Junctions 3, 6 & 9

Thursday 19th September – M8 Eastbound Junction 12 – 10 and M74 at Junctions 1A, 2 and 2A

Friday 20th September – M8 Jct 12 to M80 on slip to the M8 and M74 at Junctions 1, 1A, 2 and 2A
