Overnight surfacing improvements planned for five locations on A92 between Dundee and Arbroath

Overnight works start on Sunday 14 July over three weeks

 

An overnight project involving road surfacing improvements at five locations on the A92 between Dundee and Arbroath is set to begin on Sunday 14 July for three weeks.

The overnight surfacing project will involve improvements at five locations on the eastbound carriageway on the route between Claypotts Junction and Elliot Roundabout, almost 2.5km of upgrades in total.  The improvements are between West Grange and Ethiebeaton Roundabouts, at Ardownie Underpass, between Ardestie to Buddon Burn, from before Upper Victoria Interchange to Travebank and between Muirdrum to Panlathy.

The project will help create a smoother and safer journey across these lengths of the A92. 

The surfacing work is set to begin from Sunday 14 July for three weeks.  To minimise disruption to road users, all work will take place overnight between 7pm and 7am, Sunday nights to Friday mornings.  No works will take place will take place on Friday and Saturday nights.  There will also be no restrictions to traffic during the day time.

The project will take place using a 10mph convoy system to keep road workers as well as motorists safe. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours. 

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services, local authorities and transport organisations ahead of the project to inform them of the plans and the traffic management that will be in place each week.  

Eddie Ross, Operating Company representative for BEAR Scotland said: “This resurfacing programme is essential to ensure the continued safe use of this stretch of the A92. The improvements, funded by Claymore Roads, are part of our long term A92 road maintenance programme and will help to ensure that the route remains fit for purpose for years to come.

“We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during these works and have planned the project to take place overnight as well as avoiding the busier Friday and Saturday nights.  

“We would however encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance, leave some extra time for travel and ask them to drive carefully through any traffic management which is in place for their safety.”

Works are being undertaken by Breedon Northern Ltd on behalf of Claymore Roads and supervised by BEAR Scotland Ltd.
