A MAJOR West Fife route will be closed to allow for repair works to safely take place.

The slip road exiting the M90 southbound at Junction 1C Admiralty and a section of the bus lane at the same junction will close for two nights.

This will ensure BEAR Scotland operatives safe access when carrying out repairs to gantry sign panels.

The closures will take place between 8pm and 6am on Monday, March 6, and Tuesday, March 7.

A diversion route for traffic exiting 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.

The works are weather dependent and may be postponed and rearranged at short notice if high winds are forecast.

Consultation with relevant stakeholders including local authorities and Police Scotland has taken place.
