  • Overnight carriageway closures 26 and 27 September 2022

A section of the northbound M9 approach to Junction 2 is set to benefit from a £140,000 Transport Scotland investment in resurfacing improvements, with operating company BEAR Scotland planning to renew approximately one kilometre of the trunk road.

For the safety of workers and road users during these works, the northbound carriageway of the M9 from Junction 1A Kirkliston to Junction 2 Philipstoun will be closed from 19:30 until 06:00 on the nights of Monday 26 September and Tuesday 27 September.

A diversion route for northbound traffic will be signposted from M9 Junction 1A to Junction 2, via the M90, A904 and B8046, adding an estimated 8 minutes and 4 miles to affected journeys.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

Consultation has been carried out with relevant stakeholders to share information about the project in advance.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will improve safety and ride quality for motorists using this section of the M9.

“Road closures are essential to ensure the safety of workers and road users, however we’ve planned the works to take place overnight to minimise disruption and will do all we can to complete the project as quickly as possible.”
