A £1 MILLION project to improve road safety on the M90 near Kelty is set to begin next week.

Work will commence on Monday, February 27, and last until Thursday, April 13.

Amey is completing the scheme on behalf of Transport Scotland and the project will see improvements made to 2.7km of the barrier restraint systems on the central reserve between Junctions 4 and 5 on the M90 north of Kelty.

The work to upgrade the barrier restraint system will be undertaken using a closure of both lanes of the northbound carriageway, with the hard shoulder in operation for northbound traffic, between 7.30pm to 6.30am each night.

Travelling southbound there will be a lane closure of the outside lane on the southbound carriageway between 7.30pm to 6.30am each night.

Traffic management will be lifted each morning at 6.30am before being put back in place each night.

Around 33,000 vehicles who use the route daily are set to benefit from the improvements, Amey has stated.

Work is weather-dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.

Amey delivers engineering design and operational delivery services for Scotland’s North East Trunk Roads Network.

These services include the design and delivery of major road and bridge maintenance work, as well as inspections to ensure the routes remain safe and well maintained.
