£1.3 Million Road Safety Improvements on M90 near Glenfarg begin Sunday 11th February

11th of February 2024, 8:00pm to 3rd of May 2024, 6:00am

Extension of scheme dates

Due to challenges posed by existing ground conditions, which have caused delays on site, this scheme has been extended and is now scheduled to be completed by Friday 3rd May.

Amey is undertaking a £1.3 million project improving road safety on 1.6 miles of the M90 near Glenfarg in Perth and Kinross from Sunday 11th February to Friday 29th March.

The project will see improvements made to 1.6 miles (2.6km) of the vehicle barrier restraint systems on the central reserve of the M90, between the footbridge at Glenfarg and travelling south to the B996 overbridge.

The scheme, which Amey is completing on behalf of Transport Scotland, will benefit more than 28,000 vehicles who use this route each day.

The work to upgrade the barrier restraint system will take place overnight between 8pm to 6am from Sunday to Thursday each week.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, the improvements will be undertaken under overnight lane closures.

There will be a lane two closure on both the northbound and southbound carriageways during the work. There will also be additional lane one closures in relation to which side of the carriageway the operatives are working on, with the hard shoulder in operation for traffic.

The hard shoulder running will be switched on a weekly basis to preserve the condition of the hard shoulder.

Traffic management will be lifted each morning at 6am before being put back in place each night at 8pm.

Please note that all schemes are weather-dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are unfavourable.
