** UPDATE: REMAINING SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS IN ONGOING A92 LADYBANK PROJECT TO BE COMPLETED IN ONE NIGHT **

  • Overnight road closure in place for safety tonight, Monday 11 November, 7.30pm to 6.30am

Please be advised that due to adverse weather conditions experienced this weekend, the ongoing surfacing improvements on the A92 at Ladybank, outlined in the original release below, will now be completed overnight tonight (Monday), 7.30pm-6.30am, with the road closed overnight for safety.

The A92 was closed this weekend to carry out the majority of the surfacing work in the project, however heavy rain impacted progress with deeper excavations this weekend, meaning teams need to complete the remaining work under an overnight road closure for safety.  Tonight’s overnight closure will allow for all remaining work to be completed in one night, meaning the additional nights of convoy working programmed for this week will no longer be required. 

To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, the A92 will be closed in both directions between the New Inn Roundabout and Melville Lodges Roundabout with a short-signed diversion in place via the A914 and A91.   The A92 will reopen as normal tomorrow morning once all work is complete. 

All relevant stakeholders have been informed of the changes to the programme.

£620,000 RESURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A92 Ladybank

 

Works begin Friday 8 November

  • Weekend road closure in place for safety

 

Motorists using the A92 near Ladybank are set to benefit from £620,000 worth of surfacing improvements with works scheduled to get underway later this week.

The resurfacing improvements will address existing defects in the road allowing a smoother and safer journey for motorists. The scheme will utilise sustainable recycling techniques to treat and reuse the existing road materials on site and avoiding the necessity of them being diverted to landfill.

To ensure the project can take place safely and takes place with minimum disruption to motorists, the project has been split into two phases starting on Friday 8 November.

 

  • Phase One – 7.30pm Friday 8 November to 6.30am Monday 11 November (one full weekend)

Teams will work using 24-hour working from Friday evening over a full weekend until Monday morning at 6.30am.   To keep all roadworkers as well as road users safe, the A92 will be closed in both directions between the New Inn Roundabout and Melville Lodges Roundabout with a short diversion in place via the A914 and A91. 

 

  • Phase Two – Monday 11 November to Wednesday 13 November, 7.30pm-6.30am (three nights)

For safety, temporary traffic lights and 10mph convoy system will be in place during the final three nights of work. The road will be open as normal during the daytime. 

Consultation has taken place with local residents and stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing works 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: “This £620,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve this section of the A92 by removing any existing surface defects and creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the majority works over one weekend and programming the remainder of the improvements to take place overnight.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential works 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.”
