DRIVERS are being warned to expect delays as roadworks are carried out on a busy stretch of motorway in Renfrewshire.

A contraflow system will be in place as almost 1km of the M8’s eastbound carriageway is resurfaced at Commonside, between Junction 30 (Erskine) and Junction 29 (St James Interchange).

Work on the £332,000 project is scheduled to take place from 8pm on Friday, April 26, to 6am on Monday, April 29.

Anthony Chambers, Scotland TranServ’s lead designer on the project, said: “This is an important stretch of Scotland’s busiest motorway and therefore it is essential we work to reduce disruption for commuters, local businesses and freight traffic.

“It is also important we plan around not only the peak holiday season but that we take other significant works and utility schemes into consideration in the planning of our projects.

“These important works are in addition to a brace of resurfacing schemes between Junctions 29 and 30 completed earlier in the year.”
