M8 M73 M74 Network Improvements 18 December 2015

This scheme aims to improve safety and reduce congestion on the motorway network surrounding the Baillieston (M8/M73) and Maryville (M73/M74) Interchanges. It also forms the link between a number of improvements to the motorway network in this area (M80 Stepps to Haggs, M74 Completion, M8 Baillieston to Newhouse), and is therefore expected to improve traffic flow between these projects.

The package of junction and road improvements includes the following:

1. Widening the M8 eastbound to four lanes from J10 (Easterhouse) to J8 (Baillieston).
