Two overnight closures of A8 eastbound between Swinton and Bargeddie roundabouts

Road users are advised that the A8 Coatbridge Road eastbound carriageway between Swinton roundabout and Bargeddie roundabout will be closed overnight for two nights, between 8pm and 6am, on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 28 July 2021

These closures have been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption to traffic and are required to ensure road user and road worker safety whilst essential carriageway surfacing works are undertaken. The road will re-open at 6am each morning.

Please note, all works are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
