Drivers heading over the Erskine Bridge between 8pm on Friday (November 30) and 6am on Monday December 3 face major disruption as Scotland TranServ carries out resurfacing work.

Scotland TranServ will resurface 1.2 kilometres of the M898 southbound between the Erskine Bridge and the M8 as part of the strategic trunk road maintenance programme.

The Erskine Bridge is a main link from Argyll to the central belt and the work is expected to cause major disruption.

There will be a diversion but drivers are urged to consider alternative transport plans for the weekend, with severe delays of two hours expected on the A82 southbound.
