To ensure the safety of roadworks as well as motorists, an overnight road closure will be in place on the M90 from Junction 9 (Bridge of Earn) to Junction 8 (Arlary). Traffic wishing to continue south on the M90 will be diverted via: M90 Junction 9 off-slip, along the A912 towards Gateside, through Gateside and along the A91, back onto the M90 using Junction 8 southbound on-slip.

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

Commenting on the improvements Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This £130,000 investment from Transport Scotland will help improve this section of the M90 creating a safer road surface for motorists, as well as allowing our teams to carry out essential maintenance works.

“The overnight road closures are essential for ensuring the safety of roadworkers and road users. We’ve have programmed the project to take place overnight to help minimise disruption on this section of the M90.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential works on the M90. We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and we encourage road users to allow some extra time to their journey.”
