  • Three overnight carriageway closures commencing 8 April 2024

BEAR Scotland, Transport Scotland’s operating company, is set to resurface 1.1 kilometres of the M80 Junction 9 southbound on-slip, as well as a small section of the M80 southbound carriageway adjacent to the slip road.

The work will take place over three nights between the hours of 19:30 and 06:00, commencing on the night of Monday 8 April.

For the safety of road users and the workforce, the M80 southbound will be closed at Junction 9, with a signed diversion route in place via the M9 southbound to Junction 7, then the M876 eastbound to turn at Junction 3 and return on the M876 westbound to re-join the M80 southbound at Junction 7. This will add an estimated 11 minutes and 10.3 miles to affected journeys.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will improve ride quality and safety for motorists using this section of the M80.

“A carriageway closure is essential for safety, however we’ve scheduled the works overnight to minimise disruption.

“If you do need to travel during these works, please allow some extra time for your journey.”

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and other relevant stakeholders to share information about the project in advance.
