Latest stage of motorway work will mean road closure near Showcase leisure complex.

Cinema-goers face a diversion next week when work on a new motorway bridge takes place.

It will mean closure of Aitkenhead Road which links Viewpark and Tannochside with the Showcase complex at Bargeddie.

The road will be closed near the A8 between 8pm and 6am on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

The bridge being built is part of the M8 extension programme.

The closure means drivers will be unable to get direct access to Bargeddie from Aitkenhead Road and will be diverted on to the A8 and the Baillieston junction. They will then travel on the other side of the A8, taking the Bargeddie slip road.

Drivers leaving Bargeddie will be diverted via the A8 to Shawhead.
