Two sets of roadworks will be taking place on the M90 near Kinross during October and November.

A £1 million routine maintenance programme lasting nine weeks will see a 1km stretch of the concrete carriageway and two bridges improved.

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

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland.

From this Thursday (October 8) maintenance works on the northbound carriageway between Junction 5, Gairneybridge, and Junction 6, Kinross, will be carried out over one week to repair and improve the concrete carriageway.

Works to refurbish the north and south bridges at Junction 6, Kinross, are planned for nine weeks and will begin next Monday (October 12).

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

The works will involve road surface improvements and upgrading of the bridge deck waterproofing and bridge parapets.

During the improvements, traffic management will be in place, with alternate lane closures in place during the bridge improvements. A contraflow system on the main M90 will be in operation for the first week to allow for carriageway repairs.

However, no diversions are required as there will be alternate lane closures on the circulatory carriageway at Junction 6.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east representative, said: “This £1 million investment from Transport Scotand will allow us to carry out maintenance works to ensure our network continues to operate at the highest standard.

“We’ve planned these works following consultation with local authorities, businesses and travel operators, and every effort will be made to reduce disruption to road users.

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