Glasgow road users advised over major motorway closure


Resurfacing work on the southbound M77 between Junctions 3 and 4 will start from Monday, July 24 and last until Thursday, August 3 between the hours of 10pm and 6am, each night. 

The works are said to be beneficial for the 32,000 road users who take the route each day with Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, improving the condition of the carriageway as they aim to reduce the need for more “extensive” maintenance in the future.

Traffic will be diverted off the M77 southbound at Junction 3, taking the A727 Nitshill Road and Rouken Glen Road before turning right at Eastwood Toll to follow the A77 Ayr Road southbound to rejoin the M77 at Junction 5.

There will also be daytime lane closures to allow for the cooling of deeper sections of treatment. 

Traffic management will be removed by 6am on Friday, August 4.

In a statement from Amey, they said: “This scheme will benefit around 32,000 vehicles using this route each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for more extensive maintenance in the future. 

“Access for emergency service vehicles will be maintained throughout these works. 

“We thank road users for their patience and co-operation while this essential work takes place.”
