Road safety improvements get underway on two Scottish roads

Road safety improvements on the M90 near Kelty and Halbeath and another on the A92 north of Balfarg Junction near Glenrothes are getting underway.

The M90 project will involve teams carrying out upgrades to the existing safety barriers in the verges across a mile-long stretch of the motorway as well as the slip roads at Junction 4, ensuring the integrity and safety of the trunk road network is maintained. 

The safety improvements will take place between 9.30am and 3.30pm each day with work expected to take up to four weeks to complete.

The A92 work follows the signalisation of Balfarg Junction, and teams have been carrying out final calibration of the signals and continue to monitor the area, with the junction appearing to be performing well with minimal impact on journey times being reported.

The next phase of the project will see a new bus stop layby being installed on the southbound carriageway along with cycle and pedestrian facilities. Some works will also be carried out at Balfarg Junction to implement measures identified by the road safety audit of the completed scheme.

The project is expected to take approximately six weeks to complete.
