Drivers have been advised to plan ahead due to scheduled resurfacing works on the A92 at Lochgelly.

The A92 Lochgelly southbound on-slip is set to benefit from £53,000 resurfacing improvements which are due to take place tomorrow (Thursday) night.

The resurfacing will address any defects in the road surface, creating a smoother and safer journey along the A92 on-slip.

For the safety of the work force and the travelling public, the improvements will require an overnight closure of the A92 Lochgelly southbound on- slip from 7.30pm on Thursday evening until 6.30am on Friday.

During the slip road closure, all vehicles wishing to access the A92 southbound will be diverted from A92 Lochgelly northbound to the Chapel Interchange and then diverted back on to the A92 southbound.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east unit representative, said: “We’ve scheduled these works to be carried out in one night between 7.30pm and 6.30am in order to minimise disruption to motorists as much as possible.

“The works will improve the A92 on-slip at Lochgelly and ensure a safer and smoother journey for motorists.

“We would advise motorists to plan ahead with these works by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information before their journey.”
