Four months of roadworks near airport


Drivers using the M8 to get to Glasgow airport face serious disruption from major roadworks starting later this month - with more to follow over the next two years. The second part of a four-phase upgrading of the White Cart viaduct east of the airport is expected to cause delays of up to 30 minutes for four-months starting on January 29.

During the roadworks, a contraflow will operate between junctions 27 and 29 of the motorway, which carries 80,000 vehicles a day, with the three-lane carriageways reduced to two lanes. A 40 mph speed limit on the route will be enforced by average-speed cameras.

Airport passengers, who account for one in ten vehicles on that section of the M8, will be among those disrupted, with Glasgow-bound slip roads on to the motorway at the airport - junction 28 - closed and diversions in place.

The £4 million project is expected to last for 15 weeks, but there are two further phases to follow, expected to be in 2008 and 2009. The latest phase of the work involves replacing major joints and waterproofing the viaduct, and resurfacing the carriageways.
