The M90 northbound between Junctions 8 and 9 at Glenfarg, is set to benefit from £220,000 resurfacing improvements starting next week.

The work is being carried out following the deterioration of the surface over the winter period and will address any existing carriageway defects, creating a smoother and safer road surface for motorists.

The improvements will begin on Monday, February 29 at 6am and is programmed to take place over four days with lane closures in place for the full duration of the works. It scheduled to be completed by 10pm on Thursday, March 3.

The resurfacing improvements will require both lanes of the M90 northbound to be closed for the safety of roadworkers and motorists during the works. A single lane of northbound traffic will be open with vehicles using the hard shoulder through the area of the improvements.

Consultation will take place with local residents and stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit representative, said: “These works will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other issues which will improve the general condition and safety of the road for motorists. The resurfacing has been scheduled to minimise delays, however, we encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
