£495,000 OVERNIGHT RESURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A92 Melville Lodges to Letham Junction

 

Works start Wednesday 5 December for five nights

  • Overnight road closures in place for safety, 7.30pm-6.30am, excluding Friday and Saturday nights

 

A section of the A92 carriageway between Melville Lodges Roundabout and Letham in Fife is set to benefit from essential resurfacing improvements worth £495,000 with works set to get underway this week.

The investment from Transport Scotland will see repairs and surfacing upgrades across this section of the A92 ensuring a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.

The overnight improvements are scheduled to start on Wednesday 5 December and will take five nights to complete, excluding Friday and Saturday nights. The project will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night with resurfacing works due to be completed by 6.30am Wednesday 12 December.

To ensure the safety of road workers as well as motorists, an overnight road closure will be in place during each night of the project between Melville Lodges Roundabout and Letham Junction. A diversion route will be in place which will lead traffic east on the A91 towards Cupar, onto the A913, and back on the A92 at Parbroath Junction. Access will be maintained for local residents within the closure. All traffic management will be removed during the day.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This £495,000 investment from Transport Scotland will improve this section of the A92 by addressing and repairing any defects in the road surface, such as potholes and will therefore create an improved road surface for motorists.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the works overnight, removing all traffic management during the day and avoiding working on Friday and Saturday nights.

“We thank motorists for their patience while our teams carry out these essential works on the A92. We encourage road users to plan their journey in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and allowing some extra time to reach their destination.”

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting www.trafficscotland.org, Twitter at @trafficscotland or the new mobile site my.trafficscotland.org.

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