Drivers are warned that diversions will be in place between Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes this weekend for planned resurfacing of the A92.

The resurfacing, between the Redhouse Roundabout in Kirkcaldy and the Bankhead Roundabout in Glenrothes, will begin this Friday, May 6 at 7.30pm and is programmed to take place over one weekend using 24 hour working.

The improvements will be completed by 6.30am on Monday, May 9.

The resurfacing works will require a full road closure of the A92 northbound carriageway between Redhouse and Bankhead.

During the northbound closure, all vehicles heading north will be diverted off the A92 at Chapel Interchange and then diverted via the B981, B922 and B921 to re-join the A92 at Bankhead Roundabout.

Consultation has taken 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.

Commenting on the improvements, 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.”
