A signed diversion will be in place guiding traffic via the A92 southbound to Lochgelly Junction then back on the A92 northbound. All traffic management will be removed during the daytime.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This £600,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A92, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

“We’ve changed our ways of working to ensure all staff and the local community are kept safe at all times during the current Covid-19 pandemic, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Scottish Government guidance.

“We’ve also taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the works overnight night and avoiding working at the weekend.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A92, and every effort will be made to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.”
