  • Overnight slip road closures 18 and 19 June 2024

BEAR Scotland, Transport Scotland’s operating company, is set to carry out coring investigation works on a section of the M9 southbound carriageway after Junction 1B.

The works are programmed to commence on Tuesday 18 June for two nights, between the hours of 19:30 and 06:00 on the night of 18 June and between 20:30 and 06:00 on the night of 19 June.

To ensure the safety of the workforce and the travelling public, the southbound on-slip at Junction 1B of the M9 will be closed during the works with a signed diversion route in place, directing traffic northbound to turn at Junction 3. This diversion is expected to add an additional nine miles and nine minutes to affected journeys.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of these works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “We thank motorists and the local community in advance for their patience while we carry out these essential investigations to allow us to carry out future resurfacing works. We’ll do all we can to complete the work as quickly and safely as possible.”

Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information and allowing extra time for their journey.

All works are weather dependent and subject to postponement in the event of adverse conditions.
