UPDATE: Following delays due to cold weather, one additional night’s work is required on the M9 northbound approach to Keir Roundabout.

The northbound M9 will be closed at Junction 9 Pirnhall from 19:30-06:00 on the night of Friday 1 December, with a diversion via the A91 and A9.

  • Overnight works Monday 20 November to Thursday 30 November 2023

A section of the M9 northbound carriageway on the approach to Keir Roundabout is set to benefit from a £530,000 Transport Scotland investment in resurfacing improvements.

These works are programmed to begin on Monday 20 November and continue for eight nights between the hours of 19:30 and 06:00. No works will take place on Saturday or Sunday nights. Works are expected to be complete by 06:00 on the morning of Thursday 30 November.

To ensure the safety of the workforce and the traveling public, the northbound carriageway of the M9 will be closed during the works at Junction 9 Pirnhall, with a signed diversion route in place via the A91 northbound and the A9 to Keir Roundabout.

To allow adequate material cooling time due to the depth of construction, one lane of the M9 northbound will remain closed throughout the day on Thursday 23 and Wednesday 29 November, however the hard shoulder will be used to ensure two lanes are in operation at all times.

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: “These surfacing improvements on the approach to Keir Roundabout will address and repair defects in the road surface, such as potholes or cracks, creating safer and smoother journeys for motorists.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience while our teams carry out these improvements.”

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.
