£80,000 Improvement Project for M90 Necessity Brae Bridge near Perth

·         Project to begin on Wednesday 8 May for three weeks

·         Work to take place on the hard shoulder


Maintenance improvements worth £80,000 are scheduled to take place on the M90 Necessity Brae Bridge near Perth, starting next week.

The essential maintenance will involve upgrading the existing safety barrier and bridge parapets on the hard shoulder, around one kilometre south of Broxden Roundabout, to help ensure the bridge continues to function safely for years to come.

The project will begin on Wednesday 8 May and will take three weeks to complete.

To ensure the safety of the road workers as well as motorists, a 50mph speed restriction will be in place on both the northbound and southbound carriageways throughout the improvements.  The M90 will remain open throughout the project however the hard shoulder will be closed to road users while teams work on the bridge.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These essential maintenance works will help ensure Necessity Brae Bridge remains in a safe working condition for years to come.

“By carrying out the work on the hard shoulder, both lanes of each carriageway will remain open helping to minimise any disruption to motorists. Our teams will also be working over the weekends to ensure the project can be completed in the shortest available timescale.

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