£80,000 MAINTENANCE IMPROVEMENTS 

A92 Station Road Bridge, Thornton

Overnight works start Wednesday 9 August for up to four weeks

 

£80,000 maintenance works are scheduled to take place on Station Road Bridge on the A92 near Thornton starting this week.

The overnight works will involve upgrading the existing safety barriers and bridge parapets to help improve the structure and ensure the bridge continues to function safely for years to come.  

In order to minimise disruption to motorists, the works will be carried out overnight between 7.30pm and 6.30am on Monday nights to Friday nights for up to four weeks, starting from Wednesday 9 August.  The bridge will remain open, however lane closures will be in place to protect teams on the bridge as well as motorists during the parapet upgrades.  All traffic management will be lifted during the daytime allowing both lanes to be open. 

The work has been scheduled to avoid working most weekends to keep disruption to a minimum, although works will also take place over one weekend on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 August.  

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These essential maintenance works will help ensure the Station Road Bridge remains in a safe working standard for years to come.  

“We’ve planned these works to minimise disruption as much as possible by scheduling the works to take place overnight and ensuring one lane on each side of the carriageway will remain open on the bridge during the main parapet works.  

“We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance using the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information, and leave some extra time for their journey.”

The works will be carried out by BEAR Scotland and have been planned in consultation with Police Scotland, Fife Council and Transport Scotland.
