Motorists are being advised to expect delays on the A725 Bellziehill junction for eight weeks, beginning later this month.

The A725 Bellziehill south overbridge (A721 westbound) Bellshill, is set to close from 10pm on Sunday, June 27, 2021, for approximately two months to allow for bridge repair works.

The closure is required to allow waterproofing and re-surfacing works to be undertaken safely on the south bridge over the carriageway.

As a result, the south overbridge of Bellziehill roundabout which carries the A721 westbound will be closed to traffic between the A725 southbound on-slip road and the A725 northbound off-slip at Bellziehill Junction.

The A725 northbound and southbound off-slips and on-slips at Bellziehill Junction will remain open to traffic, while pedestrian access will be maintained via the footpaths on both the north and south side of Bellziehill roundabout overbridges.

Signed diversion routes will be in place whilst these works are ongoing.

In order to facilitate this closure, the following traffic management will be required overnight for one night on Sunday, June 27 2021, between 10pm and 6am.

A spokesperson for Transport Scotland said: "In order to minimise disruption as far as possible, Scottish Roads Partnership has scheduled these works during the school summer holidays.

"The closure will be in place 24/7 for the duration of the works and road users are being advised to allow extra time for your journey or use an alternative route if possible.

"Please note, all works are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable."

If you have any enquiries regarding these works, please contact Scottish Roads Partnership on 0800 042 0188 or [email protected]
