Dragon returns to lair with lanes resurfaced


Paisley’s Flaming Dragon has returned to its lair after a week of major resurfacing work on the M8 Whitecart Viaduct.

The road construction vehicle worked lane by lane to replace the worn out surfacing on both eastbound and westbound carriageways of the M8, delivering an improved, safer, driving experience for commuters and visitors using Glasgow airport during this busy summer of events.
The specialist roads crews resurfaced an 800m stretch each night, working a lane at a time.
In what was a huge logistical effort around 50 engineers worked nightly to improve the quality of the Whitecart Viaduct surface, delivering tangible benefits to local drivers.
This section of the M8 is also one of the first impressions visitors to the city will get ahead of this summer’s Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
