Overnight surfacing improvements planned for M80 Junction 7 Haggs slip roads


Overnight works to take place from Friday 15  February for 14 nights



Essential overnight resurfacing works on the M80 Junction 7 Haggs slip roads are set to get underway on Friday 15 February for two weeks.  

The overnight improvements will start on the northbound Junction 7 slip road from Friday 15 February and will take five nights to complete. The works will take place between 8pm and 6am each night with the resurfacing works due to be completed by 6am on Wednesday 20 February. For safety, the slip road will be closed each night during the works, and a signed diversion route will be in place for motorway users via the M876 Junction 1 Checkbar and A803 traffic will be diverted via the M80 Junction 6a Castlecary.

Once works on the northbound slip road are completed, the improvements will move to the southbound slip road from Wednesday 20 February for nine consecutive nights. The works will take place between 8pm and 6am each night with all works scheduled to finish by 6am on Friday 1 March. The southbound slip road will also be closed overnight during the improvements for safety, with motorway traffic being diverted via M80 Junction 6a Castlecary and A803 traffic will be diverted via M876 Junction 1 Checkbar.

All traffic management will be lifted out with working hours. The main M80 Motorway at Junction 7 will be open at all times during the improvements to the Junction 7 Haggs slip roads. 

Commenting on the works, Carnie Morrison, Highway Management (Scotland) Limited General Manager, said: “These essential maintenance works are being carried out overnight when traffic flows are reduced to help minimise disruption to motorists as much as possible.

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

“We encourage all motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information.”

The works are being carried out by BEAR Scotland Ltd, on behalf of Highway Management (Scotland) Limited.  Works have been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Amey, Falkirk Council and Police Scotland.
