Essential Overnight Bridge Maintenance Planned at A92 Three Stanes and Carberry Footbridges

·         Projects to take place from Sunday 28 June for four weeks

·         Strict physical distancing protocols in place for safety


An essential maintenance project on the A92 at the Three Stanes (Johnny Marshalls) and Carberry footbridges near Kirkcaldy is set to get underway from Sunday 28 June. 

The project will involve teams removing the existing safety barriers along the northbound and southbound verges of the A92 next to the bridges and replacing them with an upgraded system to protect the footbridge columns. To allow these works to be carried out in a safe and efficient manner restrictions will be required on the network as follows;

·         Sunday 28 June – Overnight lane closure between 7pm and 6am with a 10mph convoy system to install temporary barriers.

·         Monday 29 June for four weeks – Overnight lane closures between 7pm and 6am will be in place on both the northbound and southbound carriageways. A reduced speed limit of 50mph will be in place at all times for safety due to temporary safety barriers being in place.

·         Final night of project, expected to take place for one night week commencing Monday 20 July – Overnight lane closure between 7pm and 6am with a 10mph convoy system will be used to safely remove temporary barriers. Exact date will be determined as work progresses, but is expected to take place over one night in the week commencing Monday 20 July.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway.  New safe operational procedures and risk assessments have also been developed to ensure teams are kept safe throughout the project. 

Commenting on the project, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said: “This project is essential to ensure the two footbridges on the A92 remain safe and protected. 

“At this difficult time the safety of our employees and our supply chain remains a top priority during this essential project, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Government guidance to ensure they are kept safe. 

“The traffic management is essential to keep everyone safe during these works, however we’ve planned for all construction to be carried out overnight to limit the overall impact to road users and our teams will do all they can to minimise disruption and complete this project as quickly and safely as possible. 

“We thank motorists for their patience while we complete these works and encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
