New £30,000 road safety improvements planned for A92 and B936 Junction in Freuchie

Works will improve motorist visibility at junction

Project set to get underway from Monday 26 March

 

Road safety improvements worth nearly £30,000 are set for the A92 and B936 Junction in Freuchie starting next week.

The project will involve altering the height of an existing stone wall at the junction, improving the visibility and safety for drivers joining the A92 from the B936 local road.

The project will take around six weeks to complete, with the majority of the work taking place next to the carriageway to limit the impact to road users.  For safety, temporary traffic signals will be in place on the A92 for the first four days of the project, Monday 26 to Thursday 29 March, to allow teams to safely access the wall.   Following this the A92 will reopen to both lanes of traffic for the vast majority of the project, however local restrictions will be in place at various times for traffic looking to turn onto the A92 from the B936 and the Freuchie Mill Road.  

Commenting on the project, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said: “Safety is a top priority for both BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland and this scheme is part of our commitment to that. 

“The visibility improvements planned in Freuchie will mean easier and safer access to the A92 from the B936 for road users.

“We’ve liaised with all relevant stakeholders and local residents to inform them of the traffic management and junction restrictions that will be in place during the project to help minimise any inconvenience.  We’ve also arranged the project so that no traffic management will be on the A92 over the Easter weekend to further limit any impact to road users, and our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“The project is being carried out during off-peak daytime hours to minimise the impact to motorists, however, we encourage road users to plan their journey in advance and allow some extra journey time.”   

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