FOOTWAY IMPROVEMENTS PLANNED FOR A92 IN FREUCHIE

 

Works start Monday 18 November for three weeks

 

Pedestrians are set to benefit from footway upgrades next to the A92 in Freuchie with improvements scheduled to begin next week.

The improvements will involve the widening of a 150m section of the existing footway, landscaping work as well as the relocation of traffic signs and street lighting columns, helping to create a safer route for pedestrians.

The project is set to begin on Monday 18 November and is programmed to take up to three weeks to complete. The majority of the improvements will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night with some verge works taking place during the daytime.  No works are programmed for Saturday or Sunday nights.

To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, temporary traffic lights will be in place overnight throughout the project. All traffic management will be removed during the daytime.

To help minimise disruption to local residents, all noisy activities will be completed before 11pm with teams instructed to switch off flashing vehicle  beacons within the working area.

Consultation has taken place with local residents in advance of the project to inform them of the nature of the improvements and the traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These improvements will upgrade the footpath from Christiegait north to the High Street Junction in Freuchie, helping to improve the general condition and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

“The traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of roadworkers and motorists. We’ve programmed the majority of the project to take place overnight to help minimise disruption to road users. We have also planned for all noisy operations to finish before 11pm ensuring there is minimum disruption to local residents.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible, however we encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting www.trafficscotland.org or twitter @ trafficscotland or the new mobile site my.trafficscotland.org.

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.
