Overnight roadworks on M90 slip roads: 26, 27, 30 & 31 March

Overnight roadworks are planned on slip roads on the M90 on the nights of 26, 27, 30 and 31 March. This is to allow operating company Amey to carry out routine maintenance:

  • From 20:00 until 06:00 on the night of Thursday 26 March, the northbound on-slip from the A823(M) to M90 Junction 2 will be closed. A diversion route will be signposted via the southbound on-slip and M90 Junction 1C Admiralty.
  • From 20:00 until 06:00 on the night of Friday 27 March, the southbound on-slip at M90 Junction 3 Halbeath will be closed. A diversion route will be signposted via the northbound on-slip and M90 Junction 4 Kelty.
  • From 20:00 until 06:00 on the night of Monday 30 March, the southbound off-slip at M90 Junction 1C Admiralty will be closed. A diversion route will be signposted via M90 Junction 1B Ferrytoll, returning to the northbound off-slip at Junction 1C.
  • From 20:00 until 06:00 on the night of Tuesday 31 March, the eastbound off-slip from M9 Junction 1A to the M90 northbound will be closed. A diversion route will be signposted via M9 Junction 1 Newbridge, returning to the westbound off-slip at M9 Junction 1A.

These works have been scheduled overnight to minimise disruption, however motorists travelling during these times are advised to allow some extra time for their journey.

Forth Road Bridge expansion joint replacement

Work on site to replace the main expansion joints on the Forth Road Bridge commenced on 12 November 2018.

This major project will see all of the bridge’s main expansion joints replaced over the course of 2019 and 2020, starting with joints on the east side of the bridge.

Traffic on the bridge will be restricted to a single lane in each direction while work on the carriageway joints is in progress.

The east footpath will be closed to the public for the first part of the project, with pedestrians and cyclists directed to use the west footpath instead. When work on the east side of the bridge is complete and work begins on the west side, the east footpath will reopen and the west footpath will close to the public.

Journey times for vehicles using the public transport corridor over the Forth Road Bridge will not be affected by these works, and no diversions will be required.
