THERE will be overnight roadworks on both sides of the Queensferry Crossing next week.

And it includes the closure of a southbound stretch of the M90 motorway next to Rosyth.

There will be three consecutive nights of roadworks and they take place between 8pm and 6am.

The project, to allow lining works to take place, will affect Fife motorists heading towards the capital and starts on Monday May 27 on the south side of the Forth.

First is the closure of the slip road from M90 junction 1a to the M9 southbound.

The following night, Tuesday May 28, the eastbound carriageway of the A90 will be shut between Scotstoun and Dalmeny.

Diversions will be in place.

And on Wednesday May 29, the M90 southbound will be closed at Junction 1c, with southbound traffic diverted off the motorway to Admiralty roundabout at Rosyth, then immediately back on again via the southbound on-slip.

A statement from operating company Amey said: "All of these works have been planned overnight to minimise disruption, however motorists planning to use this route are advised to allow some extra time for their journeys."
