BEAR Scotland, Transport Scotland’s operating company, is set to carry out overnight resurfacing works on A985 west of Limekilns over three nights this March.

The works will take place between the hours of 19:00 and 06:30 for three nights on Thursday 23, Friday 24 and Monday 27 March 2023.

No works will take place over the weekend.

During these hours, the A985 will be closed with a signed diversion route in place via Cairneyhill roundabout and Kings Road roundabout and then on to the A944, A907, Carnegie Drive, St Margarets Drive, A823, Pitreavie Roundabout and B980 before re-joining the A985 at Kings Road roundabout.

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and other relevant stakeholders to share information about the project in advance.

All work is weather dependent and subject to postponement in the event of adverse conditions.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s Southeast Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will address and repair defects in the road surface such as potholes and cracks, creating safer and smoother journeys for motorists.

“It is essential for the safety of the workforce that we close the carriageway during these works, however, we’ve scheduled this during overnight hours to minimise any disruption.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience while our teams carry out these improvements.”
