£11,000 RESURFACING works at the Halbeath roundabout off the A92 will begin on Monday.

Starting on Monday, the works are programmed to take place over five nights between 7.30pm and 6.30am, finishing at 6.30am on Saturday, July 22.

Lane closures on the approaches to the roundabout and on Halbeath roundabout itself will be in place during the works to ensure the safety of the workforce and the travelling public during the improvements.

All traffic management will be removed before the morning peak hours.

Roads chiefs say consultation has taken place with locals in advance of the works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east representative, said: “These works have been designed to improve the general condition and safety of Halbeath roundabout for motorists.

“The improvements have been scheduled to take place overnight and avoid working at the weekend to reduce any disruption during the works. 

"We would, however, encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
