Baillieston Interchange is junction 8 of the M8 and junction 2 of the M73.

A major junction in Scotland, where the route from England to Glasgow meets the Edinburgh - Glasgow route. Major changes over the next couple of years will affect this junction somewhat - the M74 completion will enable traffic from the south to reach Central Glasgow by motorway without coming by this junction, and the M8 completion will change the layout somewhat.
