£245,000 WEEKEND RESURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A92 Lochgelly southbound

 

Works start Friday 14 June for three days

 

 

A section of the A92 southbound between Lochgelly and Cowdenbeath in Fife is set to benefit from carriageway resurfacing improvements worth £245,000 with works starting this weekend.

The resurfacing improvements will address any defects in the road allowing a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The works are scheduled to begin at 7.30pm on Friday 14 June and have been planned to take place over one weekend using 24-hour working, with all improvements set to be completed by 6.30am Monday 17 June. In preparation for the weekend works there will be overnight lane closures in place for safety on both the northbound and southbound carriageway on Thursday 13 June to allow for traffic management to be put in place ahead of the project.

To ensure the safety of road workers and road users, a contraflow system will be in place on the A92 between Lochgelly and Cowdenbeath during the project. The A92 Lochgelly southbound off-slip will be closed throughout the weekend, with a signed diversion route via the A92 southbound to Cowdenbeath then back on the A92 northbound to Lochgelly. The A92 southbound on-slip will also be closed for safety, a signed diversion route will be in place via the A92 northbound to Chapel then back on the A92 southbound where motorists can then re-join the A92 to resume their journey.

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

Commenting on the project, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “The resurfacing between Lochgelly to Cowdenbeath is the next phase in a series of improvement projects that have been carried out along the A92 in recent years, and has been designed to create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

"The resurfacing has been scheduled to take place over one weekend to minimise delays. The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of our teams as well as motorists during the works, and to help minimise delays as much as possible, we’ve planned the improvements to take place over one weekend using 24-hour working.  Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

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