  • Overnight carriageway closures 10 and 11 June 2024

The A823(M) will be closed westbound on the night of Monday 10 June, and eastbound on the night of Tuesday 11 June, to allow Transport Scotland’s operating company BEAR Scotland to carry out a variety of routine maintenance tasks.

On the night of 10 June, the westbound A823(M) will be closed between the M90 and Pitreavie Roundabout from 20:00 until 05:30, with the following diversion routes in place:

  • Northbound and southbound traffic on the M90 wishing to join the A823(M) will be directed to exit at Junction 1C Admiralty and follow a signed diversion via the A985, B980 and A823 to Pitreavie Roundabout, adding approximately 2.4 miles and 4 minutes to affected journeys
  • An alternative signed diversion will be in place for northbound traffic on the M90 that misses the exit at Junction 1C. Traffic will be directed onwards to turn at Junction 3 Halbeath and return southbound to join the diversion route from Junction 1C. This will add approximately 7.3 miles and 11 minutes to affected journeys.

On the night of 11 June, the eastbound A823(M) will be closed between Pitreavie Roundabout and the M90 from 20:00 until 05:30. A diversion route will be signposted via the A823, B980 and A985 to Junction 1C Admiralty, adding approximately 0.2 miles and 1 minute to affected journeys.

Works to be carried out includes gully cleaning, road sweeping, removal of vegetation and carriageway repairs.

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and other relevant stakeholders to share information about the works in advance.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “It is essential for the safety of the workforce that we close the carriageway while these works are carried out, however we’ll be taking advantage of the closures to carry out as many routine maintenance tasks as possible, reducing the overall need for closures and traffic management.

“We’re grateful to road users and the local community for their patience and understanding.”
