A number of slip roads on the M80 will be blocked to traffic overnight for six nights from Wednesday to allow essential road marking work.

Signed diversions will be in place each night from 8pm to 6pm, and up to date information will be available at www.trafficscotland.org, twitter @trafficscotland, or the new mobile site my.trafficscotland.org.

Carnie Morrison, Highway Management (Scotland) Limited General Manager, said: “These essential maintenance works are being carried out overnight when traffic flows are reduced to minimise delays to motorists.

“The traffic management is required to ensure that both our teams as well as all road users are kept safe during the essential road marking works, however teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible”.

The work is being carried out by WJ Road Markings Limited and supervised by BEAR Scotland Limited on behalf of Highway Management (Scotland) Limited.

It has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Falkirk Council, North Lanarkshire Council and Police Scotland.
