Extension to scheme
Issued: 12 April 2023

Due to adverse weather this scheme has been extended until Wednesday 19th April.

Work will take place on three additional nights as follows:

There will be an overnight closure from 7.30pm to 6.30am on Friday 14th April.

There will then be overnight closures from 7.30pm to 6.30am on Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th April.

Traffic management is scheduled to be removed by 6.30am on Wednesday 19th April.

A section of the A92 travelling through Glenrothes is set to benefit from a project delivering road surfacing improvements worth more than £400,000.

Amey is undertaking essential maintenance on the A92 northbound carriageway on the approach to Preston Roundabout in Glenrothes from Monday 27th March to Saturday 1st April.

The resurfacing project, being carried out on behalf of Transport Scotland, will address defects on 925 metres of the northbound carriageway.

The improvements will benefit more than 24,000 vehicles who use this route each day, creating a smoother ride for motorists and reducing the need for ongoing maintenance.

To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists the work will be undertaken using overnight road closures with a signed diversion route.

A lane closure will be in place daytime on Monday 27th March for preparatory works to take place. Then, overnight road closures will then be implemented from 7.30pm to 6.30am each night from Monday 27th March to Friday 31st March.

A lane closure will also be maintained on the northbound A92 during daytime hours in order to protect cooling material. Traffic management is scheduled to be removed by 6.30am on Saturday 1st April.

The diversion route will see northbound traffic turn left at Bankhead Roundabout onto the B921, continuing west to reach Southfield Roundabout. Traffic should then turn right onto the B969 and continue north to reach Leslie Roundabout, before turning right to join the A911. Vehicles can then continue east onto the A911 (Queensway) to re-join the A92 at Preston Roundabout.

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
