THERE are more roadworks on the way on the A92 between Crossgates and Cowdenbeath. 

A further £776,000 will be spent on resurfacing around 1,200 metres of the northbound carriageway between Thursday June 20 and Wednesday June 26. 

Amey, on behalf of Transport Scotland, will carry out the work between the A92 on slip at Crossgates and 870 metres north of the B981 overbridge.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists the essential maintenance will be carried out under a contraflow system between 7.30pm on Friday June 21 and 6.30am on Tuesday June 25.

Lane closures will be in place from 7.30pm on Thursday June 20 to 7.30pm on Friday June 21 to set up the traffic management.

There will be further lane closures between 7.30pm on Tuesday June 25 and 6.30am on Wednesday June 26 to stand down the contraflow.

The A92 on slip road at Crossgates roundabout will be closed during the contraflow.

Traffic joining the A92 from M90 Junction 3 at Halbeath will travel along the A92 to Crossgates Roundabout and take the third exit onto the B925 through Crossgates.

From there they can take a right on to the B981, then the first left to rejoin the B925 and continue to Beverkae Roundabout. Traffic can then take the first exit onto the A909 towards Cowdenbeath and join the A92 northbound.

The A92 northbound Cowdenbeath off slip will also be closed, with traffic diverted to the A92 northbound Lochgelly off slip where they can turn and return on the A92 southbound and exit for Cowdenbeath via the A909 off slip.

Traffic travelling northbound on the M90 wishing to join the A92 can exit at Junction 2A as normal and travel through the contraflow.

The scheme follows on from the £618,000 of resurfacing of 950 metres of the carriageway in early May - which brought improvements but also lengthy tailbacks and traffic delays - and a £300,000 project on 545 metres of the southbound carriageway in Spring 2023.

This will bring the total investment on the A92 around Cowdenbeath to £1.69 million, "benefitting approximately 15,400 vehicles that use this route each day and reducing the need for ongoing maintenance".  

Amey said that all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
