M90 FRIARTON BRIDGE & M90 JUNCTION 10 CRAIGEND INTERCHANGE ESSENTIAL MAINTENANCE

 

Project to take a week to complete starting Thursday 9 May

 

Routine bridge inspections and maintenance works at M90 Friarton Bridge and M90 Junction 10 Craigend Interchange near Perth are taking place this week with the project starting on Thursday.

The works will involve cleaning components on the bridge deck and verges, plus drainage clearance and landscaping maintenance. Inspections will also be carried out on the bridge decks and other structures, ensuring the network continues to function safely.

The project will begin on Thursday 9 May and is programmed to take up to a week to complete.

The project will first begin on Friarton Bridge with work taking place during the daytime between 9.30am and 3pm to keep disruption to a minimum.  The project will then move to overnight working starting at both Friarton Bridge and Craigend Interchange, with all works taking place 7.30pm and 5am each night.  All works are scheduled to be completed by 5am on Wednesday 15 May.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, there will be alternate lane closures on Friarton Bridge during the daytime works on Thursday 9 May and Friday 10 May. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours. During the overnight works from Thursday night, alternate lane closures and slip road closures will be in place to allow bridge inspections and cyclic maintenance to be carried out. A signed diversion route will be in place during the overnight works. The M90 will remain open throughout the project.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s Operating Company Representative for the North East, said: “These maintenance works are part of our commitment to ensuring that the North East network continues to be of the highest standard.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the project, including carrying out the majority of the works overnight and combining cyclic maintenance and structural inspections to help minimise the impact on the network.

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

The works will be carried out by BEAR Scotland and have been planned in consultation with Police Scotland, Perth and Kinross Council and Traffic Scotland.
