Overnight works taking place for ten nights starting Monday 23 August

 

 

A series of overnight lane and carriageway closures on the M80 and M73 are set to get underway on Monday 23 August so teams can safely carry out essential maintenance works.

The carriageway closures are required to ensure roadworkers as well as motorists are kept safe during the essential maintenance works and will allow a number of different activities to be carried out at the same time.

The works will involve inspections and cyclic maintenance duties including carriageway sweeping, litter picking and general inspections to ensure the motorway remains in a safe working condition.

Commenting on the works, Carnie Morrison, Highway Management (Scotland) Limited General Manager, said: “These essential maintenance works are being carried out overnight when traffic flows are reduced to minimise delays to motorists as much as possible.

“These essential maintenance works will help ensure the M80 and M73 Motorways will be kept in a safe condition for road users.

“The traffic management is required to ensure that both our teams as well as all road users are kept safe during the essential maintenance works, however teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We encourage all motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information.”
