£440,000 MAINTENANCE IMPROVEMENTS 

M90 Junction 8 Arlary, northbound off-slip 

Work starts Monday 11 September for five weeks

 

 

£440,000 of maintenance works are scheduled to take place on the M90 Junction 8 northbound off-slip to the A91 starting next week.

The package of improvements involves essential bridge maintenance work including repairs to the bridge deck, waterproofing, kerb reinstatement, gully improvements and resurfacing to over a kilometre of the slip road as well as to the bridge itself.   The whole package of work will ensure the slip road and bridge continue to function safely for years to come.  

To keep roadworkers as well as motorists safe during the upgrades, a full closure of the slip road will be required as it is too narrow to safely remain open during the works.  The scheme is set to begin on Monday 11 September and is expected to take up to five weeks to complete. 

Motorists travelling onto the A91 towards Cupar and St Andrews are advised to use Junction 6 at Kinross, adding approximately five minutes to journey times. Variable Message Signs (VMS) will be in place before Junction 6 to remind motorists of the closure.  Alternatively, motorists can exit the M90 at Junction 9 at Bridge of Earn.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These essential maintenance works will ensure that the junction and slip road will remain in a safe condition for years to come.  

“We only ever close slip roads when it is absolutely necessary to ensure everyone’s safety, and in this case the road is too narrow to allow the slip to remain open.

“Our teams will make full use of the closure by carrying out as many individual schemes as possible – from minor repairs to full deck maintenance on the bridge – to ensure that the slip road continues to meet our high standards, and also limit the need for future maintenance and disruption on the slip road.  

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance of this project, and we encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance using the Traffic Scotland website 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.
