M90 motorists to face contraflow delays

Motorists face disruption for six weeks as a contraflow scheme will be implemented on the M90 between Halbeath and Admiralty.

From 9 April users of the A92 and M90 in Fife are urged to plan ahead and consider alternative travel arrangements when a major traffic management scheme is implemented during April and May as part of the construction works on the Forth Replacement Crossing project.

Two lanes for both northbound and southbound traffic will be maintained on week days throughout the programmed works. This will result in expected week day delays of up to 30 minutes during peak periods of traffic.

However, for four consecutive weekends from the middle of April major surfacing works on the M90 south bound carriageway will reduce the M90 in this area to just one lane south bound. These weekend restrictions are expected to result in significant delays, possibly of two hours or more, and motorists are urged to avoid the area and use alternative routes or modes of travel.

The weekend restrictions will be in place between 8pm on Friday and 6am on Monday on 20 to 23 April, 27 to 30 April, and 4 to 7 May. There will also be a contraflow in operation over the weekend of 11 to 14 May to allow the Contractor to carry out works on the Northbound carriageway over Masterton Bridge.
