I've noticed something similar, near me in that google maps (teleatlas)  
have already updated to include the M9 Spur extension which is replacing 
the A8000, even through it isn't due to open until Mid September.

However they have shown the new road as the A8000 rather than M9

I'm currently wondering if I'm going to be able to cycle it before it 
opens, however as each end is closed to cyclists, I think I'll need to 
find a car driver willing to test it out when it opens :(
