6000m of Kerbing Laid as Junction 29 M8 at Bishopton Opens to Public

The new Bishopton Interchange at Junction 29 of the M8 near Glasgow has opened to the public at midnight Wednesday 5th December 2019. CPR were contracted by Morgan Sindall to lay over 6000m of kerbing and block paving at the new road.

CPR were responsible for the delivery of all kerbing and block paving at this major road project to create a new half diamond junction and slip roads on the south side of the existing M8 underbridge servicing the M8 westbound and eastbound traffic.

Multiple Contractors worked on the site to ensure the project was opened on time. The project included a full range of infrastructure works such as drainage, street lighting, roads, cycle paths and two roundabouts.

CPR's role was to lay all the block paving and kerbing. This included the chevrons around the roundabouts, the islands on the approach and the brindle monoblocking on those structures. The works took six months to complete.
