M90 Road Safety Works To Start Next Week

Construction News Image
Bear Scotland have announced that the first phase of a road safety project on the M90 at Junction 10 Craigend near Perth is set to get underway next week.

The project will involve teams installing new safety barriers and carrying out upgrades to existing barriers in the verges, ensuring the integrity and safety of the trunk road network is maintained at this section of the M90.

The safety improvements are programmed to begin on Monday 7 December and will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night with work expected to take up to three weeks to complete.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, the northbound slip road connecting the M90 Broxden Roundabout to M90 Friarton Bridge will be closed each night throughout the project. A signed diversion will be in place each night for motorists wishing to access the M90/A90 Dundee and Aberdeen via Junction 9 Bridge of Earn. All traffic management will be removed during the daytime, however a 50mph speed limit will be in place for safety.

Further improvements are expected to begin early next year which will involve teams installing additional new safety barriers and upgrades to existing barriers in the verges around the area of Junction 10 Craigend.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government Covid-19 guidance, will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway.

Commenting on the project, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland's North East Representative said: "Safety is a top priority for both Transport Scotland and BEAR Scotland and this scheme on the M90 which will see improvements and upgrades to the existing road safety barriers is part of our continued commitment to that.

"Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and as safely as possible. The traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of our teams and motorists, however we've planned the closures to take place overnight to limit disruption to road users.

"We would like to thank motorists in advance for their patience during this project and advise them to plan ahead by checking Traffic Scotland for up to date journey information and leave some extra time to reach their destination."
