Glasgow Baillieston M8/M73/M74 Motorway Improvements Project

Visiting our Glasgow Baillieston Lookers Van Centre? There are some important travel updates to be aware of:

  • Significant delays on M8/A8 corridor, M73 and local roads near Baillieston Interchange from 17 February 2017 for approx. ten weeks
  • ·M8/A8 traffic on approach to Baillieston Interchange, Junction 8, diverted via new A8 alignment

Scottish Roads Partnership and Transport Scotland have advised of major works and traffic management on the M8/A8 corridor in both directions on approach to Baillieston Interchange.

As part of the M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements Project, the M8/A8 east and westbound traffic will be diverted via the newly-aligned A8 near Bargeddie, from 8pm on Friday 17th February 2017, for approximately ten weeks.

This diversion is required to connect the existing M8 to the newly constructed M8 at Baillieston Interchange.

Following these works, the M8 ‘Missing Link’ will be complete, and the new M8 between Baillieston Interchange and Eurocentral will open to traffic for the first time. Access to all routes will be maintained and signed diversions will be in place on all approaches to Baillieston Interchange, however significant delays are expected on the diversion routes, the M73 north and southbound and the surrounding local roads.
