Roadwork's on M8 to hit airport passengers


Drivers heading for Glasgow Airport face delays of up to an hour as major roadworks began on Scotland's busiest stretch of motorway yesterday. Thousands of vehicles were reported to be travelling nose to tail as they crawled through coned off lanes and 40 mph speed zones on the M8.

Holidaymakers heading to Glasgow Airport were warned of two months of delays while work on the M8 between Govan and the M77 junction at Kinning Park is carried out. Yesterday, as the roadworks started, vehicles were crammed into two lanes, which became further congested when traffic joined from slip roads, including the M77 at Dumbreck.

Traffic tailed back to Junction 2 Nitshill of the M77, adding an extra 40 minutes to journey times. Motoring group the RAC Foundation warned drivers they should prepare for delays of up to an hour, with drivers having no choice but to sit in the tailbacks on the approach to the M8.

Roads company Amey Scotland is managing the £4.5million upgrade of the stretch of road, which is used by 130,000 vehicles a day. They say the 1.2-mile stretch is badly worn and has not been relaid since it opened in the 1970s.

The upgrade will see a reconstruction of the carriageway, bridge repairs, and the installation of new safety barriers, along with improvements to overhead gantries. Special speed cameras are being used to enforce the 40 mph limit. They were monitoring each driver's average speed while travelling through the roadworks.
