Signed diversions will be in place each night as required. There will be no restrictions to traffic during the day out with these times.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Government guidance, will be in place to ensure teams are kept safe.

Commenting on the works, Carnie Morrison, Highway Management (Scotland) Limited General Manager, said: “These essential maintenance and street lighting upgrade works are being carried out to ensure the M80 cand M73 continues to operate safely and remains in a safe working condition for years to come.  Teams are also working due to reduced traffic flows as well as working overnight to minimise delays 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 maintenance works, as well as to maintain social distancing all all times.  Teams will do all they can to complete the project 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 Limited on behalf of Highway Management (Scotland) Limited.  Works have been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, North Lanarkshire Council, Falkirk Council and Police Scotland.
