Workmen are set to carry of £200,000 of repairs to the A92 in Fife.

The work will be done overnight to minimise delays, but diversions will be in place.

The improvements will take place first on the northbound Lochgelly on-slip before moving to a section of the southbound A92 at Crossgates.

The project will allow teams to address any defects in the carriageway, creating a smoother and safer surface for road users.

The Lochgelly work starts on Thursday for two nights, from 7.30pm to 6.30am

The northbound on-slip will be close, and motorists diverted via the A92 southbound to Cowdenbeath and back on to the A92 northbound.

Traffic lights will also be used on the B9149 to allow for surfacing works to take place safely at the top of the slip road.

One lane of the A92 at the bottom of the slip road will also be closed during the project

Work at Crossgates, southbound starts on Monday September 3 for four nights, from 7.30pm to 6.30am

A 10mph convoy system will be in place each night.

The southbound A92 Crossgates off-slip will be closed and diversion in place for motorists.

Local traffic for Crossgates will be diverted at Cowdenbeath, along the A909 to the Mossmorran roundabout, third exit along the B925, turning right at the bottom of Springhill Brae, left at the traffic lights onto Dunfermline road and back to the Crossgates Roundabout.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east representative, said: “These works will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other issues which will improve the general condition and safety of the slip road for motorists.

“The resurfacing has been scheduled to take place overnight to minimise delays, however, we encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
