2019 Clyde Grand Prix – Roadworks and closures

The 2019 Clyde Grand Prix will be held on 28/04/2019 and we are looking forward to seeing you all.

There are a number of roadworks and road closures that might affect you when you travel to the competition. We advise you to allow extra time to reach the venue in good time for weigh-in.

Some of the road closures also affect car parking in Paisley so you might need to allow time for parking, particularly if you are attending a later weigh-in.

M8 Roadworks

The M8 is being resurfaced near Paisley and the tailbacks are likely to affect those travelling to the competition.

Please allow extra time for your journey so that you make the weigh-in times.

The roadworks are between junctions 29-30 (Paisley St. James -> Erskine) on the M8 but the traffic is expected to tailback well-beyond Glasgow Airport.
