Motorists set for more misery with next set of M90 roadworks

Roadworks at the Friarton Bridge, Perth, earlier this year.

Motorists will face more traffic chaos due to a fortnight of roadworks on one of Perth’s arterial routes into and out of the city.

Commuters have been warned to face delays as the latest batch of work continues on the M90 on Monday around 9am.

The first phase will concentrate on the northbound slip road off the motorway which leads on to the Edinburgh Road into Perth. This work is scheduled to last for a week and will result in single-file traffic and a 30mph speed limit being put in place.

The second phase of work will take place on the southbound A912 road which leads on to the M90 approaching Bridge of Earn, and this is set to begin on August 14 and again last for a week.

Both sets of roadworks are being carried out to maintain the flyover at the Craigend Interchange. However, with an estimated 30,000 vehicles using the interchange every day, the scheduled work is sure to cause traffic chaos in and around Perth.

This will be the 11th separate set of roadworks on the M90 Perth to Inverkeithing road carried out in the past three years.

Andy Thompson, of BEAR Scotland, said: “As with all of our roadworks, we do all we can to minimise any impact to road users. This scheme is taking place during school holidays when traffic flows are generally lower, and the lane closures are essential to ensure the safety of our teams working on the bridges as well as for passing motorists.

“Every effort will be made to reduce any impact to road users during this scheme, and our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information.”

He added: “These works will allow us to ensure that the trunk road network remains at the highest standard, and the improvements are essential to ensure the bridges remain safe for road users.

“The lane closures will protect our team and the public while the bridge maintenance is completed.”

Roadworks are currently taking place between the Broxden roundabout and Inveralmond roundabouts near Perth to make way for the Cross Tay Link Road.
