Two sections of the A92 around Glenrothes will be closed overnight to allow essential carriageway improvement works to be carried out.

Works started on Monday for three nights, however today (Tuesday) BEAR Scotland confirmed that works have been extended and will now take place from Wednesday, June 17 for three nights due to adverse weather conditions.

No works will take place on Tuesday due to the forecast poor weather.

Work began on the first of two sections of the A92 at Bankhead Roundabout on Monday night, but due to the weather forecast they have been delayed, pushing back the second phase of works planned for the A92 Cadham junction.

The improvements are now scheduled to continue on Wednesday night at Bankhead for one night, before moving to the second location at Cadham junction for two nights, starting on Thursday, June 18.

All diversions and traffic management will remain the same, with a northbound closure in operation at both locations for safety and a local diversion in place between 7.30 p.m. and 6.30 a.m.

Southbound traffic at the Cadham junction will be controlled by a convoy system of traffic management.

The works are part of a £40,000 investment by Transport Scotland and will involve the application of high friction surfacing on two separate sections of the northbound carriageway and refreshment of the road markings.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east unit representative, said the works are being carried out overnight to minimise delays.

He added: “We would, however, encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time.”
