An overnight project involving road surfacing improvements at four locations on the A92 between Claypotts Junction and Ardestie Interchange is set to begin on Sunday 1 November for three weeks.
The project will involve improvements on the A92 at Ethiebeaton Roundabout, the eastbound A92 from Balgillo layby to Panmurefield, the westbound section from Balmossie to Balgillo and the westbound approach to Ardestie Interchange. The project will see almost 2.5km of carriageway resurfaced, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists.
The surfacing improvements are set to begin on Sunday 1 November over three weeks. To minimise disruption to road users, all improvements will take place overnight between 7pm and 7am. No works will take place on Friday and Saturday nights.
To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, the first five nights of work at Ethiebeaton Roundabout will require a road closure between 7pm to 7am. During the closures traffic will be diverted north from West Grange Roundabout north on the C4, west on the B961 Drumsturdy Road then south on the B962 to Ardestie using the eastbound slip to re-join the A92.
All other locations will be carried out using a 10mph convoy system for safety during working hours.
All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.
Consultation is being carried out with emergency services, local authorities and transport organisations ahead of the project to inform them of the plans and the traffic management that will be in place each week.
Eddie Ross, Operating Company Representative for BEAR Scotland said: “This resurfacing programme is essential to ensure the continued safe use of these areas on the A92. The improvements, funded by Claymore Roads, are part of our long term A92 road maintenance programme and will help to ensure that the route remains fit for purpose for years to come.
“We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during these works and have planned the project to take place overnight as well as avoiding the busier Friday and Saturday nights.
“We would however encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance, leave some extra time for travel and ask them to drive carefully through any traffic management which is in place for their safety.”
Works are being undertaken by Breedon Northern Ltd on behalf of Claymore Roads and supervised by BEAR Scotland Ltd.
