TEN days of roadworks on the M90 motorway at Kelty will get underway tomorrow.

Drainage investigations are to be conducted over a 12km section of the northbound carriageway which will involve teams carrying out cleaning and CCTV surveys.

The works are taking place between Junction 4 (Kelty) and Junction 8 (Arlary) and are scheduled to start tomorrow (Tuesday) and take approximately eight days and nights using 24-hour working.

Investigations are planned to be completed by Thursday February 20.

To ensure the safety of the workforce as well as motorists, 24 hour lane closures with a 50mph speed restriction will be in place.

Lane closures will be implemented in approximately 2km sections.

Andy Thompson, of BEAR Scotland, said: “These investigations are part of the general routine maintenance of the M90 carriageway and are essential in ensuring the drainage network is kept in good functional condition.

“The planned traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both road workers and motorists.

"We’ve planned this project to take place 24/7 to ensure the works are completed as quickly as possible and to minimise the overall impact to road users.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential works on the M90.

"We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
