DRIVERS have been facing huge delays on the M8 this morning after a multi-car crash near Anderston.

Traffic Scotland first raised the alarm just after 8am.

The team said on Twitter: “Please note it is VERY busy on the #M8 W/B this morning.

“An earlier multi-vehicle RTC at Anderston plus routine morning congestion has caused this.”

At 8.30am, Traffic Scotland provided an update and wrote: “Long delays (up to 1 hour) continue on the #M8 W/B after an earlier multi-vehicle RTC.

“Reports of queuing back to the #M73 interchange and knock on effect being felt on the #M80.

“All lanes are running but if you can #PlanAhead and avoid the area.”

The lengthy queues continued as of 9.15am.

Traffic Scotland warned: “Allow plenty of travel time if you’re intending to use this route or make alternate plans.”

Traffic eventually eased by 11am.
