Road closed

Essential maintenance work will take place overnight on the westbound M8 Junction 26 slip road to Arkleston Road, between 8pm and 6am each night, from Monday 26th October to Tuesday 3rd November 2020. The aim of the work is to resurface the hard shoulder.

The scheme is intended to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the trunk road at this location and to reduce the need for future maintenance.

The work will take place in two phases, with a signed diversion route in operation.

  • PHASE 1: 8pm Monday 26th October – 6am Friday 30th October
    • Overnight Lane Closures with Fast Lane 3 only open
    • M8 Jct 26 Westbound On-slip Closed and
    • Jct 27 Westbound Off Slip Closed
  • PHASE 2: 8pm Monday 2nd November – 6am Tuesday 3rd November
    • Overnight Lane Closures with Hard Shoulder only open,
    • M8 Jct 26 Westbound On-slip Closed and
    • Jct 27 Westbound Off-slip Open

The road will be open as normal outwith these times.

Diverted traffic will leave the M8 at the Junction 26 off-slip road to the A736 Hillington Road and continue to the A761 Paisley Road West. From here, vehicles will follow the diversion to the A726 and on to the A741 Renfrew Road to re-join the westbound M8 at Junction 27.
