Work starts this Sunday, November 1, on a £375,000 project to improve a 1.3km stretch of the M90 near Kinross.

It will involve resurfacing and maintenance works on the M90 northbound carriageway between Junction 6, Kinross, and Junction 7, Milnathort, and is expected to take two weeks.

The project is the second phase of a nine-week, £1 million improvement scheme.

The M90 near Kinross is used by almost 30,000 vehicles a day and BEAR Scotland says the improvements will considerably enhance the safety of the road at this location.

During the improvements traffic management will be in place for the safety of the workforce and for motorists. A contraflow system on the main M90 will be in operation throughout the works to allow for the carriageway repairs to take place.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east representative, said: “This £375,000 investment from Transport Scotland will allow us to carry out maintenance works to ensure our network continues to operate at the highest standard.

“We encourage motorists to plan their journey in advance and check the Traffic Scotland website before setting out.”

The works will be carried out by BEAR Scotland and have been planned in consultation with Police Scotland, Perth and Kinross Council and Transport Scotland.
