£110,000 RESURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

A92 Preston Roundabout to Tullis Russell Roundabout

Works start Friday 23 June for eight nights

 

A section of the A92 between Preston Roundabout and Tullis Russell Roundabout in Glenrothes, Fife, is set to benefit from over £110,000 resurfacing improvements starting later this week.  

This section of the A92 is used by around 19,000 vehicles every day and it now requires upgrading.  

The resurfacing improvements will create a smoother and safer journey on the A92 between Preston and Tullis Russell Roundabouts.  A specialist retexturing technique will also be used at Tullis Russell Roundabout that is designed to restore levels of grip on the road surface.  

The overnight resurfacing will begin on Friday 23 June and is programmed to take place over eight nights, from 7.30pm to 6.30am each night. The improvements will be completed by 6.30am on Saturday 1 July.  

For safety, the resurfacing improvements will require a full road closure of the A92 carriageway between Preston Roundabout and Tullis Russell Roundabout, with a full closure of the Tullis Russell Roundabout in place overnight on Friday 23, Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 July. 

During the closures, all vehicles heading northbound will be diverted off the A92 at Preston Roundabout and then diverted via the A911 Queensway and B969 Western Avenue which they can then re-join the A92 at Balfarg. Southbound traffic will be diverted via the B969 Western Avenue to Leslie Roundabout and A911 Queensway when they will then re-join the A92 at Preston Roundabout.    There will be no access to the A92 from the B9130 from Markinch overnight on Friday 23, Saturday 24 or Sunday 25 July when Tullis Russell Roundabout is closed, with traffic instead diverted locally.

Consultation will take place with local residents, Fife Council and other stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These works will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other issues which will improve the general condition and safety of the road for motorists, and also help to restore grip on Tullis Russell Roundabout.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption as much as possible by scheduling the works to take place overnight, and our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.  

“The road closures are essential to ensure the safety of both our teams as well as road users, and the short diversions that will be in place shall be signed in advance to alert motorists.  

“We’d encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information and leaving some extra time to reach their destination.”

The resurfacing has been scheduled to minimise delays, however, we encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting www.trafficscotland.org or twitter @ trafficscotland. 

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.
