Part of the M80 will be closed for several nights next week to allow resurfacing work to take place.

The southbound stretch between Junctions 8 and 9 will be shut from 7:30pm until 6:30am on three nights, from July 12-14.

This is to allow BEAR Scotland to resurface one kilometre of the road near the River Carron.

A signed diversion route will be in place directing southbound traffic via the M9 and M876.
