Eight week closure of A725 Bellziehill Junction south overbridge (A721 westbound), Bellshill

Road users in North Lanarkshire are advised to expect delays as the A725 Bellziehill Junction south overbridge (A721 westbound) Bellshill, will be closed from 10pm on Sunday 27 June, for approximately eight weeks to allow for bridge repair works.

This eight week closure is required to allow waterproofing and resurfacing works to be undertaken safely on the south bridge over the A725 carriageway.

As a result, the south overbridge of Bellziehill roundabout which carries the A721 westbound will be closed to traffic between the A725 southbound on-slip road and the A725 northbound off-slip at Bellziehill Junction.

The A725 northbound and southbound off-slips and on-slips at Bellziehill Junction will remain open to traffic, while pedestrian access will be maintained via the footpaths on both the north and south side of Bellziehill roundabout overbridges.

Signed diversion routes will be in place while these works are ongoing.

Traffic Management

To facilitate this closure, the following traffic management will be required for one night on Sunday 27 June, between 10pm and 6am.

  • A725 northbound and southbound carriageways between Orbiston Junction and Diamond Interchange (James Street) will be reduced to a single lane.
  • Closure of the A725 northbound off-slip at Bellziehill Junction, with a signed diversion route in place via the A725 northbound and Diamond Interchange.

To minimise disruption as far as possible, Scottish Roads Partnership has scheduled these works during the school summer holidays. The closure will be in place 24/7 for the duration of the works and you should allow extra time for your journey or use an alternative route if possible.

All works are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
