Traffic disruption for Thistle supporters

Thistle supporters who travel to Firhill on matchdays via the M8 motorway should note that there is expected to be significant traffic delays on the road for the next 10 weeks, a period which takes in every Jags fixture until the end of April.

As part of the M8 / M73 / M74 Motorway Improvements Project, the M8 will be diverted at Junction 8 Ballieston Interchange. Both east and westbound traffic on the M8/A8 will be diverted via the newly aligned A8 near Bargeddie from 8pm on Friday 17th February 2017, for approximately ten weeks. This diversion is necessary to connect the newly built M8 to the existing motorway at Ballieston Interchange.

Transport Scotland is warning all road users to expect major delays on all surrounding routes as a result of the M8 diversion. Diversion routes can be found here

All Jags fans are encouraged to leave plenty of time for their journey to Firhill on Saturday to ensure they don’t miss a minute of action in what should be another exciting Ladbrokes Premiership match.

More information on the road closure can be found here.
