  • Three nights of roadworks begins 17 October 2022

  • Overnight carriageway and slip road closures required for safety


A three-night programme of overnight resurfacing works is set to get underway on the M80 motorway.

The roadworks will see the M80 main southbound carriageway improved between Junctions 6a and 6 and the northbound carriageway at the Junction 7 mainline and slip road.

Linda Craig, Highway Management (Scotland) Limited Project Manager, said: “This essential resurfacing work will help ensure the M80 motorway is kept in a safe condition for road users.

“The works are being carried out overnight when traffic flows are reduced, to minimise delays to motorists as much as possible.

“The planned carriageway closures are required to ensure that both our teams, as well as all road users, are kept safe during the essential maintenance works.”

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

The works are being carried out by Breedon Aggregates Limited on behalf of Highway Management (Scotland) Limited.  Works have been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Amey and North Lanarkshire Council.
