The works between the Shawhead Junction and Chapelhall Junction on the A8 is part of a £30,000 investment by Transport Scotland to renew sections of the road which has been worn over time.

A diversion will be in place while engineers carry out the works between 8pm on Thursday and 6am on Friday

Ian Stewart, of road maintenance provider BEAR Scotland, said: "The closure during these works is essential for the safety of the workforce and the travelling public.

"These operations have been scheduled to take place overnight to minimise delays."
