Motorists can log onto Twitter and sign up for regular updates
Drivers on Scotland's busiest motorway have been warned to expect some delays as a £4.4m resurfacing project begins.
Traffic on the eastbound carriageway of the M8 between junction 5 Shotts and junction 6 Newhouse may be reduced to one lane between 2000 BST and 0600 BST.
At other times, two lanes will remain open in both directions but a 40mph speed limit will be in place.
A page has been set-up on micro-blogging website, Twitter, to keep motorists informed of delays.
The first phase of the work is expected to last two weeks.
Eddie Ross of Bear Scotland, which operates the road, said: "The upgrade will ensure this section of the M8, used by 57,000 vehicles per day continues to operate safely for years to come.
"We have planned the works to cause as little disruption to motorists as possible.
"The Twitter updates are intended to provide useful information to help people plan their journeys in advance."
The upgrade programme will continue throughout the year, with the next phase taking place in autumn.
