A92 Forgan Roundabout to Five Roads Roundabout


Works start Friday 12 April for three days



The second phase of £315,000 surfacing improvements for A92 between Forgan Roundabout and Five Roads Roundabout is set to get underway later this week over one weekend.

The resurfacing improvements will address existing defects in the road allowing a smoother and safer journey for motorists. The project follows on from a previous phase of surfacing improvements at this section of the A92 which was completed last month.

The resurfacing improvements will begin on Friday 12 April at 7.30pm and is programmed to take place over one weekend using 24-hour working, with works set be complete by 6.30am on Monday 15 April.

To ensure the safety of road workers and road users during the improvements, there will be a full road closure in both directions with a short-signed diversion in place. This diversion will be in place from Friday evening until Monday morning. All motorists travelling northbound will be diverted via off the A92 at Melville Lodges Roundabout and then diverted north via the A91 and A914 to Forgan Roundabout. Traffic heading south will be diverted off the A92 at Forgan Roundabout and diverted south via A914 and A91 to Melville Lodges Roundabout.

Consultation has taken place with local residents and stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing 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 Unit Representative, said: “The second phase of these £315,000 works on this section of the A92 will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other issues which will improve the general condition and safety of the road for motorists.  

“To keep everyone safe during the project, a road closure is necessary during the improvements however we’ve planned this scheme to take place over one full weekend to limit overall disruption to road users.

“We’ll work to complete the improvements as quickly and safely as possible and our teams will do all they can to minimise disruption.

“We thank motorists for their patience while we complete these works and encourage them to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
