A8(M) was a motorway in Glasgow, Scotland, which was opened in 2016 after the Scottish Government proposed that the Baillieston Roundabout should be motorway standard and that the A8 was not up to motorway standards, so work started in early 2015 to upgrade the road. It was the shortest motorway in the United Kingdom. It is now an unnumbered link from the M73 and M8 to the A8.[1][2][3][4]
