Essential maintenance is planned for the M90 Cocklaw Overbridge near Kelty in Fife with works set to get underway next week.
The £60,000 project, located at Junction 4 Kelty, will involve teams replacing some of the existing bridge components, repairing and waterproofing the concrete deck as well as resurfacing sections of the overbridge which carries the B914 over the M90 trunk road, ensuring the continued safe operation of the structure for years to come.
The B914 local road will remain open throughout the project however there will be four-way temporary traffic lights in place continuously with signals positioned on the M90 slip roads and the overbridge for safety. The M90 will be unaffected during the work.
Access for pedestrians along the B914 across the bridge will be maintained.
Consultation has taken place will all relevant stakeholders in advance of the works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements.
Commenting on the works, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said: “This £60,000 investment from Transport Scotland will help ensure that the Cocklaw Overbridge near Kelty continues to operate safely for all motorists and functions to the highest standard.
“The traffic management is essential to keep everyone safe during this project however our teams will do all they can to complete the essential maintenance as quickly and safely as they can. We encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website before they travel and allowing some extra time to reach their destination.”
