Motorists in Fife have been advised that the resurfacing improvements planned for the A92 Thornton Bypass, which had been due to take place this weekend, have been postponed until Friday, December 4, due to heavy rain forecast for this weekend.

The resurfacing work require dry weather conditions to be carried out and the forecasted inclement weather could impact on the quality of the new road surface if work continues this weekend.

The resurfacing was to be the second of two phases of works being carried out on the A92 Thornton Bypass this week.

The first phase, bridge maintenance on River Ore Bridge, began on Monday and is due to finish as planned tomorrow (Friday) morning.

Because of the changes, from December 4 there will be a full weekend closure of the southbound carriageway.

All vehicles heading south will be diverted off the A92 at Bankhead Roundabout and then diverted via the B921, B922 and B981 before re-joining the A92 at Chapel.

Consultation has taken place with affected local residents and stakeholders in advance of the improvements to raise awareness of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.
