A section of the A92 between Five Roads Roundabout and St Fort Farm in Fife is set to benefit from surfacing improvements worth £135,000 starting on Sunday night.
The investment from Transport Scotland will address defects in the road surface creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists.
The project is scheduled to start on Sunday 1 November and will take place over four nights between 7.30pm and 6.30am, with all work expected to be completed by 6.30am on Thursday 5 November.
To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours each night. For safety, an overnight road closure at the approaches of B946 to Wormit & A919 St Michaels will be required on Monday 2 November. A signed diversion route will be in operation. All traffic management will be removed during the daytime.
Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government Covid-19 guidance, will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway. New safe operation procedures and risk assessments have also been developed to ensure teams are kept safe throughout the project.
Consultation has taken place with local residents and stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.
Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This £135,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this busy section of the A92, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements by carrying out the project overnight, however we’ll do all we can to ensure that this project is completed as quickly and as safely as possible.
“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these works on the A92. We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information.”
