A section of the A92 between Bankhead Roundabout in Glenrothes and Redhouse Roundabout in Kirkcaldy, Fife, is set to benefit from £345,000 resurfacing improvements this weekend.

This southbound section of the A92 is used by around 16,170 vehicles every day and it now requires upgrading.

The resurfacing will commence tomorrow (Friday) at 7.30 p.m. and is programmed to take place over one weekend using 24-hour working. The improvements will be completed by 6.30 a.m. on Monday.

The resurfacing works will require a full road closure of the A92 southbound carriageway between Bankhead Roundabout and Redhouse Roundabout.

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

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east unit representative, said: “These works will improve the general condition and safety of the road.

“We encourage motorists to plan journeys in advance and allow extra time to reach their destination.”
