OVERNIGHT works are set to close a slip road exiting the M90 southbound later this month.

The essential closure of Junction 1C Admiralty and a section of the bus lane on Monday, February 20 and Tuesday, February 21, will provide safe access to workers so that repairs to gantry sign panels can take place.

Chris Tracey, BEAR Scotland’s South East Unit bridges manager, said: “We always avoid closing roads wherever it is safe and practical to do so, however the location of this overhead gantry is such that a slip road closure is necessary for the safety of road users and our operatives.

“We’ve scheduled the works to take place overnight to minimise disruption and we thank motorists in advance for their patience and understanding.”

Closures will take place between the hours of 8pm and 6am each night and a diversion route for those still wishing to exit at Junction 1C will be signposted via the M90 southbound to turn at Junction 1B, before returning to exit via the M90 Junction 1C northbound off-slip.

These works are dependant on the weather and could be subject to postponement and rearranged at short notice if high winds are forecast. All relevant stakeholders, including local authorities and Police Scotland have been consulted on these works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements put in place.
