Traffic Scotland advised drivers to pass with care while the eastbound carriageway on the A814 was reduced to one lane – causing queues during rush-hour.

It was eventually reopened shortly after 5pm.

A spokesperson for Glasgow City Council stated: “The vehicle has been recovered and both lanes are now open.”
