To ask the Scottish Government when the Newhouse (a) off ramp and (b) on ramp on the A8/M8 will reopen.
Answered by: Keith Brown 21 November 2016
The westbound entry slip from Newhouse to the newly constructed A8 All-Purpose Road was opened on Monday 14 November 2016.
Although the eastbound exit and entry slip roads remain open, the westbound exit slip road from the A8 to Newhouse is closed to facilitate the safe construction of the significant improvement works forming the £500m M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements Project. This slip road is currently planned to open in mid-December.
