I went up the M8 this morning and it took me about 45 mins to get from start of traffic build up (about half way between bishopton and the airport turn off), all the way to Ibrox turn off where it eased right up - normally that’s where I hit the queue.How do we think it will be coming up from Greenock and leaving the M8 at the Ibrox junction (at Asda)?
Wouldn’t you be better just taking the subway from the West End?It may be a walk right along PRW and over the bridge at the bottom of Oswald Street if you are heading to-from the city centre.
If coming from west end (where I'm coming from) I will probably go through the clyde tunnel.
FFS!When I left work tonight at 5 I came on the motorway at renfrew heading towards erskine a
and traffic on the opposite side towards Ibrox wasnt moving at all
Got caught out by the closure at Ardlui the other weekend.Additional roads issues for bears travelling back to Oban and North Argyll after the game. Night time closures due to roadworks on the A82 near Ardlui and also the A85 at Loch Awe. Both scheduled to be closed between 2000hrs and 0600hrs. Potential issues at rabt too due to weather so Old Military Road might come into play. Works amnesty on A85 at midnight and 0200 to let traffic through.
There’s no if, it’s to be horrific weather the next 48 hours. It’s going to be chaos tomorrow nightyep, but I will probably have a bit of time on my hands so plan to walkover then subway back.
If it's crap weather then I likely will do the most logical thing, subway both ways.
Vermont Street seems to be the best suggestion I have seem for my journey from Edinburgh - is there a good chance of getting parked there?Park on Vermount St and walk to the game.
Need to get back to the airport by 8 after the Ross game,what do you think are the chances?I live in Wales so would appreciate any info.Also is there an alternate way back to the airport?Cheers
Im flying from Bristol tomorrow and getting into the airport at 5:30 ish so hoping I get into town ok. Ross county I am driving back to Wales as the flights were no use and driving seemed easier.I‘m also in Wales and decided to seatsub my ticket for the Ross County game and give it a miss. Travel will obviously be challenging. I was planning to drive originally but canned that idea given cop26 chaos. When I fly up I usually get the subway back into town then jump on the airport express bus which is a pretty regular, reliable and quick service. I’m not sure it will be as smooth that day though. I‘ve no alternative suggestions other than the usual Uber or taxi route. Perhaps a train to Paisley then jump in a cab if the city centre roads are at a standstill?
For tomorrow nights game, I’d love to be there to pay my respects to Walter but will have to do so from home. Bears able to get to Ibrox will definitely need to travel early.
Bells bridge is definetley closed, M77 M8 will be murder, massive delays on both motorways, Clyde tunnel will also be full of delays, all roads round the SECC will be either closed or full of delays, aswell as the paisley road west and Govan road. Its basically a stand still here. It will be worse next week.
Aye there is loads of spaces just the later you get there the further away you will get from the footbridge over the motorways.Vermont Street seems to be the best suggestion I have seem for my journey from Edinburgh - is there a good chance of getting parked there?
Don't mind the half hour walk at all as I usually park the other side of the squinty bridge (so my usual places are out of boundaries!)
Same I considered that , I drive in from the town after work, then back home to East Kilbride after.Tempted just to leave my car at my work and walk to Buchanan subway
Good to know. Going to park at the NCP King Street on the East side of the city and walk from there. Know there are closer spots but coming into the city via the M80 avoids the M8 as you can just drive along the outside lane past all the merging traffic.Don't take this as gospel but I believe the Bells bridge is closed but the Clyde Arc is open for pedestrians.
Walk along Shieldhall Road for 25 minutes and get the 77 bus to the airport. Most reliable way. If for some reason there's a problem when you get to bus stop, get an Uber. Traffic no problem by then.Need to get back to the airport by 8 after the Ross game,what do you think are the chances?I live in Wales so would appreciate any info.Also is there an alternate way back to the airport?Cheers
Torture, a lot of the normal Expressway and tunnel traffic will be using the Erskine Bridge and M8
Zero.Whats the chances of getting parked in the Albion at 19:30.
I initially wasn’t going to make it tonight, but have managed to shuffle a few things about and get a favour from a colleague. Only thing is I am going to be cutting it really fine. Maybe more neat than I’d like if traffic is a riot.
Corkerhill Road been shut for weeks mate.I usually join the M8 just before the airport after leaving from North Ayrshire via the A737 but thinking maybe best to totally avoid the motorway tonight. Think I'll go through Barrhead and get to Paisley Road West via Corkerhill Road.
