A bird's-eye view of the new section of the M8

Drone footage shows work on the new section of the M8 which is due to open soon.

The "missing link" of Scotland's busiest motorway, between Newhouse and Baillieston, is due to open westbound on April 23 and eastbound one week later.

Transport Scotland hope that work on the £500m M8 M73 and M74 motorway improvements project will cut journey times at peak times by about 20 minutes.
