M90 JUNCTION 8, ARLARY, southbound

From : 5th November 2018

To : 12th November 2018

Posted : 5th November 2018



Please be advised that the ongoing road improvements on the M90 southbound on-slip at Junction 8 Arlary have been extended for an extra night on Sunday 11 November.  

Heavy rain earlier this week prevented teams from completing the improvements as planned, and works will now continue for one final night on Sunday to finish the remaining surfacing works.

The improvements will now take place overnight on Sunday 11 November between 7.30pm and 6.30am, with an overnight closure of the slip road in place.  The diversion for the closure is the same as the one in place earlier in the project, with traffic diverted along the B996 to Milnathort, left onto the A922 into Kinross, continuing to the High Street and B996 before heading on to the M90 south at Junction 5.  

A lane closure will remain in place on the southbound on-slip for safety until the works can be completed on Sunday night.

The project is anticipated to be completed by 6.00am on Monday 12 November.

M90 Junction 8 Arlary southbound on-slip

Works starts Monday 5 November for five days



The M90 Junction 8 Arlary southbound on-slip is set to benefit from £345,000 resurfacing improvements starting from tonight.

The improvements will ensure the slip road is resurfaced and address any cracks, potholes or other defects in the carriageway helping to improve road safety on the route.

The work is programmed to take place using a combination of traffic management arrangements to keep road workers as well as motorists safe during the project.  

The project will first be carried out under night-time working between 7.30pm and 6.30am for the first two nights starting on Monday 5 November with a 10mph convoy system will be in place. 

On Tuesday 6 November the B996 slip road towards Milnathort will be closed for safety due to the location of the surfacing improvements.  Traffic wishing to join the M90 southbound will be diverted under convoy and on to the Junction 8 southbound on-slip. 

Local non-motorway traffic for Perth and Kinross will be diverted along the B996 first left, and taking a right onto the Duncrevie Road, left to Blairnathort, follow the road down to the B996 Perth road Jct. 

From 6.30am on Wednesday 7 November the project will be carried out under 24-hour working for three days. For the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists the slip road will be closed continuously throughout this final phase. A diversion for traffic wishing to travel southbound will be provided via the B996, through Milnathort and onto the A922 through Kinross high street and re-joining the M90 southbound using Junction 5 southbound on-slip.

Consultation has taken place with local residents and stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said:  “These improvements will help ensure the on-slip at Junction 8 onto the M90 continues to function safely for road users.

“We’ve planned the works to take place in two phases to minimise the impact to motorists as much as possible by carrying out some of the project overnight, however our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance and check the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information before they travel.”
