A section of the A92 near Greendykes in Dundee is to benefit from an improved road surface worth £80,000 with works set to get underway from Saturday 27 November.
The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the north and southbound sections of the A92 between Broughty Ferry Road and Scott Fyffe Roundabout, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.
The works are scheduled to begin on Saturday 27 November at 8am and are expected to take two days to complete. All works are expected to be completed by 5pm on Sunday 28 November, subject to weather conditions.
To help ensure the project can take place safely, on Saturday 27 November from 8am to 5pm, the A92 will be closed from Broughty Ferry Road and Scott Fyffe Roundabout. Signed diversions routes will be in place to guide motorists via Dundee Road West to Fairfield Road, and then to Arbroath Road. On Sunday 28 November from 8am to 5pm, the A92 will be closed from Scott Fyffe Roundabout and Broughty Ferry Road. Signed diversions will be in place to guide motorists via Strips of Craigie Road.
Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the surfacing improvements to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements.
Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This £80,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A92, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
“Due to the nature of the works, it is necessary to close to the road to ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists however our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and as safely as possible.
“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A92. We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
