The M876 motorway is a 12-mile stretch of road in Scotland connecting other parts of the M8 motorway, which runs between Edinburgh and Glasgow. The M876, which opened in 1975, is considered a vital part of the Scottish road network, linking the two major cities.

In terms of safety, the M876 has an excellent record. Data from the UK Government’s Department for Transport shows that there were only two casualties on the motorway in the period between 2016 and 2019. This is well below the average motorway risk score for Great Britain during the same period, making it one of the safest motorways in Scotland.

In recent years, the road has seen significant investment to improve safety and increase capacity. These developments include the installation of a smart motorway system and the widening of sections of the road to provide additional lanes. It is clear that the government is committed to making the M876 a safe and efficient route for all users.
