The A92 is set to benefit from £95,000 worth of resurfacing work which is due to start overnight next week. 

The improvements will take place at the Cowdenbeath northbound off-slip and will start on Monday (August 6) at 7.30pm and will continue for three nights. 

There will be a complete closure of the slip road and a signed diversion to Lochgelly will be implemented each night during the improvements.

Traffic lights will also be in use on the A909 Bridge Street to allow for surfacing and lining at the top of the slip road.

The A92 will remain open throughout the project, however one lane on the northbound carriageway will be closed to protect the workforce when working at the bottom of the slip road.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These works will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other issues which will improve the general condition and safety of the road for motorists. 

“We’ve planned the slip road resurfacing to take place overnight for three nights to keep disruption to a minimum, and our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.  

“We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website and allowing some extra time to reach their destination.”
