Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 8 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government for what reason the slip road exits from the A8/M8 to Maxim Park Eurocentral are closed, and when they will reopen.

Answered by: Keith Brown 21 November 2016

Scottish Roads Partnership, the project contractor, has confirmed that the slip roads at Eurocentral Junction will remain closed until Spring 2017, however, this will be reviewed as construction progresses.

The A8 eastbound exit and entry slip roads at Eurocentral are closed to facilitate the safe construction of significant improvement works forming the £500m M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements Project. The westbound exit slip remains open with the westbound entry slip to the A8 closed due to facilitate the A8 to A725 link road.
