Motorists using the A92 between Dundee and Arbroath will soon benefit from a smoother road surface as essential overnight improvement works get underway at a series of locations starting this Sunday

Overnight resurfacing works will begin on Sunday, September 25, over a nine night period starting with the approaches to West Grange Pedestrian Crossing Westbound and Ethiebeaton Roundabout Northbound before moving on to resurface the approaches to West Grange Pedestrian Crossing Eastbound and Panmurefield Pedestrian Crossing Eastbound. There will then be a return to these areas to carry out new high friction surfacing and refresh the road markings on the route.

To minimise disruption to motorists travelling between Dundee and Arbroath, the works will be carried out overnight between 7pm and 7am, with no works taking place on Friday or Saturday nights.

During the overnight works, a convoy system of traffic management will be in operation on the dualled road on the approaches to Panmurefield Eastbound Pedestrian Crossing and West Grange Westbound Pedestrian Crossing for the safety of the workforce and of motorists.

Due to the location of the works, some local roads will be closed for a few nights for safety during the resurfacing improvements. From midnight on Sunday and again on Wednesday, September 28, the approach to Ethiebeaton Northbound will be closed with a short signed diversion in place for traffic. The approach to West Grange Pedestrian Crossing Eastbound will also be closed from 8pm on Monday, September 26, and Thursday, September 28, with traffic diverted North at West Grange Roundabout along the link road past Ethiebeaton Retail park and back onto the A92 at Ethiebeaton Roundabout. There will be no restrictions to traffic during the daytime.

Eddie Ross, Operating Company representative for BEAR Scotland said: “This resurfacing programme is essential to ensure the continued safe use of this stretch of the A92. The improvements, funded by Claymore Roads, are part of our long term A92 road maintenance programme and will help to ensure that the route remains fit for purpose for years to come.

“We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during these works, and have planned the works to take place overnight and avoid the busy Friday and Saturday nights.

“We would however encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and leave some extra time for travel, and ask them to drive carefully through any signed diversion routes.”

Works are being undertaken by Breedon Aggregates Ltd on behalf of Claymore Roads and supervised by BEAR Scotland Ltd.
