Scotland TranServ revise road resurfacing work

Tuesday, 27 November 2018

Plans to resurface the M898 south of Erskine Bridge this weekend have been amended.

Due to concerns relating to trunk road disruption close to the Christmas shopping period and over the cup final weekend, Scotland TranServ has advised that resurfacing works planned on the M898 for this weekend will now be restricted to overnights only.

A revised programme of works will now be scheduled for weekend overnights only, including:

  • 8pm Friday 30 November to 6am Saturday 1 December
  • 8pm Saturday 1 December to 6am Sunday 2 December
  • 8pm Sunday 2 December to 6am Monday 3 December

Scotland TranServ’s Network Manager Paul Lynch added:

“Under this revised schedule, Scotland TranServ will implement a reduced treatment plan, resurfacing those carriageway defects most urgently in need of repair. At a later date more deeply affected parts of the M898 southbound carriageway will require a fuller treatment.

“To address these defects a weekend closure will be necessary at a time more convenient to stakeholders, communities, businesses and the events calendar. We will continue to consult with local authorities, emergency services and key stakeholders to ensure this important programme of work is completed as quickly and safely as possible.”
