BEAR Scotland will be undertaking road surfacing improvements at four locations on the A92 between Balgillo Roundabout and Muirdrum Interchange, with works set to begin on Monday 8 August for three weeks.
The project will involve improvements on the A92 at Balgillo Roundabout, the westbound section at Upper Victoria Interchange, the westbound section after Muirdrum Interchange and the eastbound section at Muirdrum Interchange. The project will see 2.5km of carriageway resurfaced, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists.
The surfacing improvements are scheduled to take place over three weeks, with all works planned to take place between 7pm and 7am. No works will take place on Friday and Saturday nights. All works are anticipated to be complete by 6am on Thursday 1 September, subject to weather conditions.
To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, the works will take place as follows:
There will be a road closure at Balgillo Roundabout. During the closures, eastbound traffic will be diverted south from Claypotts Junction onto the B978 Claypotts Road, east on the A930 Monifieth Road, continue on A930 Ferry Road to Grange Road and then to West Grange Roundabout. Westbound traffic will follow the same diversion route in reverse. Access to Clearwater Park and Balgillo Heights on the north side of Balgillo Roundabout will be maintained on the eastbound carriageway.
Consultation has been carried out with emergency services, local authorities and transport organisations ahead of the project to inform them of the plans and the traffic management arrangements.
A spokesperson for BEAR Scotland said: “This resurfacing programme 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.
“To help limit disruption as much as possible, we have planned these works to take place overnight as well as having no works planned over the weekend, however our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.
“We would 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 Trading Ltd on behalf of Claymore Roads and supervised by BEAR Scotland Ltd.
