The link allows drivers travelling east on the M8 at this location to pass beneath the motorway and return westbound on the M8 or to travel south on the M77. It also allows drivers travelling northbound on the M77 to access the M8 westbound or to return southbound on the M77.
The works started on 26th March 2007 for a period of 12 weeks.
The scheme was planned to ensure that traffic delays are minimised as far as possible. Various lane closures were in operation during the contract. The speed limit was reduced to 40mph for the duration of the works.
Environmetal impact was minimal as the works were confined to the existing road boundary.
Road orders were published.
