Drivers are being warned about the closure of a major East Renfrewshire road in one direction while "essential works" are carried out.

The A726 Glasgow Southern Orbital, from Belle Craig Roundabout to Philipshill Interchange, will be shut overnight from 8pm on Friday, September 8, to 6am on Saturday, September 9.

The closure will affect the eastbound carriageway only and allow for resurfacing and associated lining works to take place.

All vehicles except those associated with the works will be restricted.

As an alternative route, motorists can drive from Belle Craig Roundabout to the B767 Glasgow Road and then on to the B764 Eaglesham Road and the A726 Queensway and then on to the Philipshill Interchange.
