OVERNIGHT SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A972 Kingsway, Westbound

 

Works start Wednesday 4 December for 12 nights 

 

A section of the westbound A972 Kingsway in Dundee between the Milton of Craigie Roundabout and Pitkerro Roundabout is set to benefit from carriageway resurfacing improvements starting on Wednesday.

The project will involve resurfacing improvements and lining upgrades to help ensure that the westbound section of the A972 Kingsway between the Milton of Craigie Roundabout and Pitkerro Roundabout continues to operate safely for years to come.

The overnight project is scheduled to start on Wednesday 4 December and is expected to take 12 nights to complete. Improvements will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night with works due to be completed by 6.30am Friday 20 December. No works will take place over the weekend and traffic management will be taken down during the day.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists there will be a 10mph convoy system in place each night during working hours. There will also be various restrictions at Mid Craigie Road Junction during the project to allow improvements to take place safely.    Signed diversion routes will be in place each night to guide motorists to their destinations.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These surfacing improvements will greatly improve and strengthen this busy section of the A972 Kingsway in Dundee, as well as create 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 project overnight and removing all traffic management outwith working hours to further limit any impact to road users.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out this project on the A972. We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information.”

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

 

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