OVERNIGHT resurfacing work is to take place on the A985 in Rosyth next week.

Admiralty Road will be closed for two nights during the works between Kings Road Roundabout and Hilton Road, as will Brankholm Brae past Unwin Avenue.

The work at the Brankholm roundabout, which will be carried out by Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland, will be done on Tuesday and Wednesday (July 27 and 28) nights between 8pm and 5am

A signed diversion route will be in place directing traffic around the works between Kings Road Roundabout and Cairneyhill Roundabout via the B980, A823, A907 and A994. This will add an estimated nine minutes to affected journeys.

All traffic management will be removed during the daytime.

Consultation has taken place with relevant stakeholders in advance of these works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements to Brankholm Roundabout on the A985 in Rosyth will improve the road surface at this location, creating safer and smoother journeys for motorists.

“It is essential for the safety of road workers and motorists that we close the carriageway during these works, however we’ve scheduled them overnight in order to minimise any disruption.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience while our teams carry out these improvements.”

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website www.trafficscotland.org for up to date travel information and allowing extra time for their journey.
