A SLIP ROAD from the A92 and part of the southbound carriageway of the M90 motorway in West Fife will be closed for eight nights for resurfacing.

The smooth operators from BEAR Scotland will be filling potholes and repairing defects from Monday, January 23, to Wednesday, February 1, excluding Saturday and Sunday nights.

As well as the slip road from the A92 at junction 2A, the main carriageway of the M90 southbound will be closed between junction 3 (Halbeath) and junction 2 (Pitreavie) from 8pm to 6am.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South-East network manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will address and repair defects in the road surface such as potholes and cracks, creating safer and smoother journeys for motorists.

“It is essential for the safety of the workforce that we close the carriageway during these works, however, we’ve scheduled this during overnight hours to minimise any disruption.

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

Transport Scotland's operating company will have a diversion route in place for southbound traffic, via Sanderling Way, Sandpiper Drive, Lapwing Drive, Carnegie Avenue and the A823(M), adding approximately 2.4 miles and eight minutes to affected journeys.

Northbound traffic will be unaffected.
