Police are advising motorists of heavy congestion on the M8 westbound between junctions 2 and 3 due to contraflow road works running in both directions.

Motorists are advised to avoid the route if possible.

It is anticipated that similar congestion will be experienced later today in the same area on the eastbound carriageway, as traffic returns to Edinburgh following the League Cup Final. Some streets around Tynecastle are expected to be closed off.

There are also long running roadworks on Queensferry Road which have been causing delays, works to renew a gas main on Inverleith Row where there is single file traffic and no access to Bristo Place today because of BT works.

You can read the full list of roadworks for this week on the Council website here.
