A section of the M876 between junction 8 at bankhead and junction 2 at North Broomage will be closed for three nights.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week the road will be closed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. to allow £60,000 of essential carriageway resurfacing works to be carried out.

Traffic wishing to use this section of the M876 will be diverted from junction 8 at Bankhead via the northbound M80 to junction 9 at Bannockburn before being directed to join the southbound M9, travelling to junction 7 at Kinnaird House.

From junction 7 local M876 traffic will be directed to leave the M9 and join the M876, where they can travel to junction 3 at Bowtrees and join the westbound M876, continuing to their intended destination.

Throughout the duration of the works there will be no access to the eastbound M876 from junction 1 at Checkbar. Traffic wishing to access the eastbound M876 at junction 1 will be diverted via the A883 and A9 to junction 2 at North Broomage where they can resume their normal journey.

Ian Stewart, of BEAR Scotland, said: “These works are being carried out at night to minimise the impact on the travelling public. However, it is essential for the safety of the workforce and motorists that this section of the M876 is closed overnight while these works are ongoing.

“It is anticipated that there will be some disruption for motorists using this route and we would therefore encourage them to plan their journeys in advance.”
