If I owned all the UK roads, this is how the M876 and M9 (J7 and J8) would look. If this did happen, where the M876 joins the M9 at J8 will be M876 J3, and where it joins at M9 J7 will be M876 J3A. The current M876 J3 will be changed to J4.

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.
