Drivers are warned that temporary traffic lights will be in place on the A92 until Monday as work to improve the A92 continues.

Resurfacing at the Melville Lodges roundabout started on Tuesday night, and is programmed to take place over four nights.

The improvements will be completed by 6.30am on Monday, March 14, with no works planned to take place on Friday or Saturday night.

To allow teams to complete the work safely and for the protection of motorists, temporary traffic lights will in use during the works to ensure the safety of the work force and the travelling public.

The lights will be in place each night between 7.30pm until 6.30am the following morning, with the exception of Friday and Saturday night.

The resurfacing at Melville Lodges Roundabout is the latest project on the A92 and follows on from nearly £600,000 of improvements carried out on the trunk road in recent months, including resurfacing at the Thornton Bypass, the Lochgelly southbound on-slip and a section of the route from Freuchie to Eden Bridge.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east unit representative, said: “These resurfacing works will repair any defects in the route which will improve the general condition and safety of the road for motorists.

“We’ve scheduled these works to take place overnight to minimise disruption to traffic as much as possible, and will also avoid working on Friday and Saturday nights.

“We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
