Motorists using the M90 southbound are warned to expect delays while resurfacing works are carried out this month on the M90

A contraflow will be in place on the M90 for approximately three kilometres from Junction 3 Halbeath to the Aberdour Road overbridge, from 8pm on Friday, August 18 until 6am on Monday, August 21.

Southbound traffic will be restricted to a single lane, however the hard shoulder will be used to provide two lanes northbound.

The southbound slip road onto the M90 at Junction 3 will be closed, with traffic diverted via Halbeath to the Cowdenbeath junction on the A92 and then along the A92 to Junction 2a southbound on the M90.

Mark Arndt, Amey’s operating company representative for the Forth Bridges Unit, said: “We’ve planned these works at the weekend in order to minimise disruption, however some delays are anticipated and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused. Motorists planning to use this route should allow some extra time for their journey.”

Overnight closures are also planned on the slip road onto the M90 northbound at Junction 1 and the slip road off the M90 northbound at Junction 2 to allow for resurfacing works.

These slip roads will be closed between 8pm. and 6am. on the nights of August 14 -17.

Diversion routes will be signposted via Junctions 1 and 3.

Mr Arndt said: “We’ve planned these works overnight in order to minimise disruption. Motorists planning to use either of these routes should allow a few minutes extra for their journey.”
