ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE ON THE M77 AT JUNCTION 1 COMMENCES SATURDAY 5TH MARCH
Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland as part of the Network Management Contract for the South-West Trunk Road Unit, are undertaking essential maintenance on the M77 at Junction 1 Southbound from Saturday 5th March until Monday 14th March (inclusive) 2022, between the hours of 10pm and 6am, each night. It is anticipated works will be complete by 6am Tuesday 15th March 2022. This scheme, with a value of £360,000, will benefit around 24,827 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future.
The work will be carried out using a full closure of the M77 southbound with local diversions in place. The Junction 1 southbound off and on-slip roads will be closed as will the Junction 2 Southbound off-slip. Diversions are as follows:
M74 Westbound to M77 Southbound Diversion
Traffic will continue on the M74 westbound onto the M8 and leave at Junction 23 before turning right on to Dumbreck Road heading north, then turn left on to Paisley Road West heading west. Vehicles will leave paisley road west turning left at Crookston Road (A736), then turn left at the junction with Brockbun Road and at the end of Brockburn Road take the second exit on the roundabout to Barrhead Road, heading east on Barrhead Road to re-join the M77 Southbound at Junction 2.
M8 Westbound to M77 Southbound Diversion
Traffic will continue on the M8 westbound leaving at Junction 24, before turning left on to Helen Street heading south. Vehicles will then turn right on to Paisley Road West heading west. Vehicles will leave Paisley Road West turning left at Crookston Road (A736), then turn left at the junction with Brockbun Road and at the end of Brockburn Road take the second exit on the roundabout to Barrhead Road, heading east on Barrhead Road to re-join the M77 Southbound at Junction 2.
The M77 Junction 1 southbound off and on-slips will be closed each night, with traffic wanting to join the motorway being diverted from Junction 1 along Dumbreck Road, then turning on to Mosspark Blvd. and then turning left on to paisley Road West and following the diversion route as above.
Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works. Our operatives will follow strict physical distancing and hygiene protocols throughout the programme, in line with the Scottish Government’s COVID-19 guidance.
