M898 RESURFACING 30TH NOV TO 3RD DEC 2018

Saturday 24th November 2018

AS part of Transport Scotland's strategic trunk road maintenance programme, Scotland TranServ will resurface 1.2kilometres of the M898 Southbound between the Erskine Bridge and the M8.

In order for the 400k project to be carried out as quickly and safely as possible, it will be necessary to close this section of the southbound carriageway of the M898 for the duration of the weekend beginning 8pm Friday 30th November until 6am Monday 3rd December 2018.

There will be a diversion route in place but drivers are urged to consider alternative transport plans for that weekend. Our specialist traffic modelling contractor is forecasting severe delays in the region of two hours affecting the A82 Southbound.

The A726, M8 at St James Interchange and the surrounding communities of Bishopton, Inchinnan, Renfrew, Erskine, Dumbarton, Old Kilpatrick, Bowling, Milton, Clydebank and Bearsden are also expected to be extremely congested. M898 Northbound traffic will not be affected by the works throughout the duration of the weekend.
