Major overnight surfacing improvements planned for five locations on A92 between Dundee and Arbroath

Overnight works start on Sunday 29 April over six weeks 

Total of 13 overnight road closures required for safety throughout project

Phase One to begin at Balgillo Roundabout


A major project of road surfacing improvements is set to get underway on the A92 between Dundee and Arbroath across five locations starting at the end of April. 

The overnight surfacing project will involve improvements at five locations on the route between Claypotts Junction and Elliot Roundabout.  Improvements will first be made to the approaches and exits at Balgillo pedestrian crossings and roundabouts, before moving on to Panmurefield, West Grange, Ethiebeaton and finishing with Elliot pedestrian crossings and roundabouts.  

The works will involve surfacing sections of the approaches and exits at each of the five locations to create a smoother and safer road surface.  High friction road surface material will then be applied on some of the approaches to help improve grip on the road surface and improve road safety.

To minimise disruption to road users as much as possible, all work will take place overnight between 7pm and 7am, Sunday nights to Friday mornings.  No works will take place on Friday and Saturday nights.  There will also be no restrictions to traffic during the day time.

The majority of the project will take place using a 10mph convoy system to keep road users as well as motorists safe.  Due to the location of some sections of the works, the A92 will be closed overnight during some nights will traffic diverted locally.  Any diversions will be signed in advance.  

The project will be split into weekly phases.  Details of each phase will be shared weekly to inform all relevant stakeholders about the plan for the week ahead.  Details of the first phase of the project starting on Sunday 29 April are detailed below.

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services, local authorities and transport organisations ahead of the project to inform them of the plans and the traffic management that will be in place each week.   

Eddie Ross, Operating Company representative for BEAR Scotland said: “This resurfacing programme is essential to ensure the continued safe use of this stretch of the A92. The improvements, funded by Claymore Roads, are part of our long term A92 road maintenance programme and will help to ensure that the route remains fit for purpose for years to come.

“We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during these works and have planned the project to take place overnight as well as avoiding the busier Friday and Saturday nights.   

“We would however encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance, leave some extra time for travel and ask them to drive carefully through any signed diversion routes.”

Works are being undertaken by Breedon Northern Ltd on behalf of Claymore Roads and supervised by BEAR Scotland Ltd.
