MOTORISTS are being advised to expect delays on the M90 later this month.

Over the weekend of August 31 and September 1, traffic will be restricted to a single lane in each direction between Junctions 2a and 3 to allow operating company Amey to resurface the northbound carriageway.

The work will take 48 hours and will begin at 12am on Saturday, August 31 and finish at the same time on September 2.

A contra flow will be in operation between M90 Junctions 2a and 3 and the northbound off-slip at M90 Junction 3 Halbeath will be closed while the work is carried out.

A diversion route for traffic that would normally leave the motorway at M90 Junction 3 will be signposted from M90 Junction 2 Pitreavie Interchange via the A823(M), the A823 Queensferry Road and the A907 Halbeath Road.

These works have been planned for the weekend to minimise disruption, however traffic delays are expected. Motorists planning to use this route are advised to allow extra time for their journey.
