M90 Bridge of Earn, southbound


Work starts Thursday 30 July over four days



Sections of the M90 southbound carriageway south of Bridge of Earn is set to benefit from surfacing improvements starting this week.

The project will address defects in the road surface on the southbound carriageway through Junction 9 which will include improvements to the southbound on-slip and off-slip for the A912, ensuring the integrity and safety of the trunk road network at these locations is maintained.

The majority of the improvements are planned to take place over one weekend using 24-hour working, with all improvements expected to be completed by 6.30am on Monday 3 August. To allow these works to be carried out in a safe and efficient manner restrictions will be required on the network as follows;


·         Thursday 30 July – Resurfacing work will take place on the Junction 9 southbound off-slip toward the A912.  The slip road will be closed overnight between 7.30pm and 6.30am to allow teams to safely complete the work. Signed diversion routes will be in place for motorists. 


·         Friday 31 July to Monday 3 August – Resurfacing will take place on the southbound M90 and southbound on-slip road.  To ensure roadworkers and road users are kept safe during the project, a contraflow system will be in place on the M90 between Bridge of Earn and Balmanno Hill from 7.30pm on Friday 31 July until 6.30am Monday 3 August. The M90 Junction 9 southbound on-slip will be closed for the duration of the project. Signed diversions will be in place via the M90 northbound to Junction 11 Barnhill and then back southbound via M90.


Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway.  New safe operation procedures and risk assessments have also been developed to ensure teams are kept safe throughout the project. 

Commenting on the project, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This latest investment from Transport Scotland will allow us to carry out surfacing improvements on this section of the M90 to ensure our network continues to operate at the highest standard.

“The safety of our employees and our supply chain remains a top priority at this difficult time, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Scottish Government guidance to ensure they are kept safe. Thorough risk assessments have been developed and cleansing stations will be implemented on site to ensure all staff remain safe.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists during this project. To help minimise delays as much as possible, we’ve planned the majority of the improvements to take place over one weekend using 24-hour working, and our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the M90. 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.”
