Work finally begins to complete Bellziehill roundabout upgrade

WORK to carry out repairs to Bellshill’s busy Bellziehill roundabout will get under way later this week.

Drivers will face disruption due to the partial closure of the roundabout with traffic travelling from Bellshill to Viewpark facing a lengthy diversion via the Raith Interchange.

Repairs were originally carried out to the bridgedecks two years ago but is having to be partially redone because of severe weather conditions since then.

The work, costing around £37,000, is due to get under way on Friday and expected to take just over two weeks.

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out the project which will help to tackle potholes and repair the road surface on the southbound bridge near to the McDonalds restaurant.


A section of the road surfacing will be removed alongside the concrete bridge deck, using specialist robots to remove the damaged concrete.

A new section of concrete will then be poured around the existing steel reinforcement, new through deck drains installed to help remove sub-surface water, re-waterproofing of the new concrete area and resurfacing the road.

Colin Mackenzie, operating company representative for Amey, said: “We understand that road works can be frustrating, especially to commuters and we thank motorists for their patience while we carry out these essential repairs.”

A signed diversion will also be in place throughout the course of the works.
