Drivers face disruption for a fortnight while a section of road in Rosyth undergoes a £320,000 resurfacing project.

Resurfacing works will be carried out on the A985 between the Admiralty Road Roundabout and Kings Road Roundabout in the town. The £320,000 investment is by Transport Scotland which says the work will ensure that the A985 continues to operate safely for years to come.

The works will commence on Saturday 30 July and are programmed to last 14 days, With Traffic Management in place for the duration of the works. The works will commence each day at 08:00hrs and will be completed by 19:00hrs.

The A985 at this location will be closed to eastbound traffic throughout the works and diversions will be in place. Westbound traffic will be not be affected by this diversion.

Eastbound M90 traffic will be diverted via Kings Road and A823(M). Local Traffic will be diverted via Castle Road, Ferry Toll Road, Castlandhill Road and A90.

The closure of the Queens Road Roundabout will be required over the weekend of 30 – 31 July to allow the maintenance works to be carried out. Local diversions will be in place.

Commenting on the works Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s South East Unit Representative, said: “The surface of the road, which carries 14,000 vehicles per day, is worn out and needs to be replaced. These works are a combination of two schemes, which are being carried out together to minimise disruption to the public. They have been planned over a short period to minimise delays we would however encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance where possible.”

The works are being carried out by Breedon Aggregates on behalf of BEAR Scotland. These works have been planned in consultation with Fife Council and the police.
