M90 Junction 6 to 5 southbound


Works start Monday 26 November for ten nights



A section of the M90 between Junction 6 and 5 in Perth and Kinross is set to benefit from drainage improvements worth £200,000 with the project set to begin next week.

The overnight improvements will take place on the southbound carriageway of the M90 at Kinross which will involve teams carrying out drainage improvements to the central reservation, creating safer travelling conditions for road users.

The overnight improvements are scheduled to start on Monday 26 November and will take ten nights to complete. The project will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night with all improvements expected to be completed by 6.30am Saturday 8 December.  No works are scheduled for Saturday or Sunday nights.

For the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, there will be lane closures on the M90 in both the northbound and southbound lanes between Kinross Junction and Crook of Devon Junction.

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.

Commenting on the project, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “The £200,000 drainage works at Kinross will help improve this section of the M90 creating a safer journey for motorists.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists. The improvements have been scheduled to take place overnight to help minimise disruption for road users. Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and we encourage motorists to allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
