Es­sen­tial main­te­nance will con­tinue through the week

Mo­torists may ex­pe­ri­ence de­lays due to road­works set to be­gin on the A90 Perth to Dundee road on Mon­day.

The £230,000 resur­fac­ing work will take place on the south­bound car­riage­way of the road be­tween the Kin­fauns In­ter­change and the junc­tion for Wal­nut Grove near the busy Fri­ar­ton Bridge.

They will be­gin around 7.30pm on Mon­day and last five nights. Bear Scot­land has claimed this stretch of the A90 is used by nearly 19,000 ve­hi­cles ev­ery day.

The south­bound lane will be closed with a con­voy sys­tem op­er­at­ing and a 10mph speed limit put in place. The north­bound car­riage­way will not be af­fected by the road­works.

A spokesper­son for Bear Scot­land said the work will run un­til 6.30am each night in or­der to “min­imise” any im­pact on traf­fic.

“The £230,000 overnight project will up­grade the con­di­tion of the south­bound car­riage­way at Kin­fauns, help­ing to cre­ate a smoother and safer road sur­face,” she said.

“As traf­fic man­age­ment is nec­es­sary to en­sure the safety of the work­force and road users dur­ing the project, we’ve planned the works to take place overnight when traf­fic vol­umes are re­duced to min­imise any im­pact to road users as much as pos­si­ble.

“Th­ese works will re­pair a num­ber of cracks, pot­holes and other sur­fac­ing is­sues.

“The works are pro­grammed to take five nights and our teams will do all they can to com­plete the project as quickly as they can.”

She added that vari­able mes­sag­ing signs are also in place on the A90 to pro­vide fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

The road­works were orig­i­nally sched­uled to take place in early De­cem­ber.

De­tails of the work set to start on Mon­day evening.
