ROADWORKS that were due to start on the M90 at Kelty tonight have been postponed until next Friday.

Carriageway resurfacing had been programmed to take place over the weekend on the northbound off-slip at junction 4 of the motorway.

However, due to "operational reasons" it's been pushed back until next Friday, November 27, from 7.30pm and should be complete by 6.30am on Monday November 30.

The traffic management arrangements will be as previously outlined, with a slip road closure in place throughout the duration of the project.

Motorists wishing to use the off-slip will be diverted via the M90 northbound to M90 Junction 5 (Crook of Devon) then back onto the M90 southbound to Junction 4 (Kelty) southbound off-slip.

For safety, temporary traffic lights will also be in place on the B914 / A909 when the work gets underway.

All relevant stakeholders have been updated and advised of the revised date for this project.
