Diversions to be in place to support installation of new bridge over M8 this weekend

Between 9pm on 31 July and 11am on 1 August, both sides of the M8 will close to allow the main span of the new bridge over the M8 at Sighthill, and diversions will be put in place to allow journeys that would normally use this part of the motorway to use alternative routes.
