£160,000 Overnight resurfacing improvements planned for two locations on M90 near Perth

M90 Friarton Bridge to Broxden slip road and M90 Cherrybank southbound

Work to take place for two nights on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 March


Overnight resurfacing improvements worth £160,000 are planned for two locations on the M90 near Perth, starting this week.  

The project will address the slip road at Craigend from Friarton Bridge towards Broxden Roundabout, as well as addressing a section of the southbound carriageway just south of Broxden Roundabout, near Cherrybank. 

The works will involve carrying out repairs to address road defects in the carriageway surface.  

The works are set to take place as follows:


M90 Friarton Bridge to Broxden slip road, Craigend Interchange

Wednesday 14 March and Thursday 15 March, 7.30pm to 6.30am (two nights)

o The slip road will be closed overnight for two nights for safety to allow teams to carry out the surfacing works.  Traffic wishing to travel to Broxden roundabout will be diverted to M90 off-slip to Bridge of Earn and then back onto the north side of M90 towards Broxden.


M90 Cherrybank southbound (Broxden to Craigend)

Thursday 15 March, 7.30pm to 6.00am (one night)

o A section of the M90 southbound carriageway south of Broxden Roundabout will be resurfaced over one night.  For safety, the works will require a full road closure of the M90 southbound carriageway between Broxden Roundabout and Craigend Interchange overnight on Thursday. During the southbound closure, all vehicles heading south will be diverted off the M90 at Broxden Roundabout and then diverted via the A93 (Glasgow Road), York place, South street and A85 (Dundee Road) to re-join the M90 at Barnhill interchange.


The project has been planned to minimise disruption to motorists as much as possible.  All stakeholders have been informed of the overnight closures to share information about the traffic management arrangements and minimise any inconvenience. 

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit 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. 

“The resurfacing works need to be completed under road closures for safety reasons, however we’ve arranged for the works to place overnight and to limit the impact to road users as much as possible.  

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible, however we encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

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