Scheme Outline

Upgrade of the existing roundabout to a grade-separated roundabout interchange, removing the biggest bottleneck on the M80/A80 route north-east from Glasgow. It is one of several schemes planned as interim measures before the M80 upgrade is ready to proceed.

Progress

14 January 2004 Work begins.
14 October 2004 Work has been severely delayed since the collapse of an embankment carrying the north side of the new roundabout. Work is still progressing on-site but it's not certain whether this issue has been resolved.
14 April 2005 The collapsed embankment and sliproad have now been rebuilt and at least one bridge is in place, though not yet connected to anything. Northbound A80 traffic is now passing around the junction rather than through on the mainline.
14 November 2005 The junction is now open to traffic, though some minor works are still ongoing to complete the junction and landscape the site.

It's over!
