A80 Upgrade Cumbernauld-Old Inns

The gap in the trees to the right was the original pre-dual carriageway A80 alignment, into Cumbernauld village. It looks (not apparent in this photo) as if it's going to carry a road again to serve a cottage behind and to the right of the camera which will no longer be able to exit onto the upgraded road. There were grey stakes inserted along it.

There used to be a wee repair garage here on the left, but it's been swept asunder in the improvements.

At present (Sep 09), the temporary road layout is a wide S4 with bollards separating each carriageway.

Not sure how they're going to divide the 3 lanes each way between the arches?

A80 Upgrade, Castlecary-Longcroft

Just after Castlecary arches, this view shows the approach to the junction with A803. Recently, a bridge carrying a minor road over the A80 has been removed, in order to allow a bridge with a span capable of reaching across three lanes per side (hitherto only two) is constructed. The bridge was this side of the bridge visible, which carries the A803

A80 Crash

The queues stretched some distance back onto the M80, some traffic is trying to leave at junction 4 to try to avoid the queue not realising that the cause of the delay is just out of sight around the corner and they would be better off staying on the main road.

A80 GSJ - Coppermine - 17093.GIF
Glasgow EERR/A8/A80 GSJ

According to Wikipedia the East End Regeneration Route will go under Edinburgh Road (A8) but it doesn't mention what will happen at Cumbernaud Road (A80) a few metres to the North. I think the best thing would be to put the route under the A80 and stick in a compact GSJ. With my Provan Gasworks design this provides a decent length of freeflow off the M80 and into the East End before things get too tight for GSJs. Of course, given the project budget, the most likely arrangement is an A80 at-grade junction Originally uploaded to Coppermine on Feb 28, 2008 by jackal

Before M876.jpg
Taken from a 1965 road map showing the dual carriageway A876/A80 before the motorway were added.

When the M80 was extended north, the A876 was upgraded to motorway until J2 with the later section completed in the early 80s.

M80 Stepps Terminus.jpg
Unlike the Haggs Terminus the Steeps bypass ended at half a roundabout interchange so a short section of road was built to connect the M80 and A80 together. When the M80 was extended to Haggs this junction was upgraded with full access.
