A92 works continue with resurfacing near Monifieth
The resurfacing programme on the A92 is due to take two weeks.

The scheme will involve improvements at Panmurefield Roundabout, the westbound section after Muirdrum Interchange, the eastbound section approaching Muirdrum Interchange and the westbound section approaching Ethiebeaton Roundabout.

It will see 1.5km of carriageway resurfaced, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists

To help minimise disruption to drivers, all improvements will take place overnight between 7pm and 7am. No works will take place on Friday and Saturday nights.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and drivers, the first four nights of work at Panmurefield Roundabout will involve a road closure between 7pm to 7am. During the closures eastbound traffic will be diverted south from Claypotts Junction onto the B978 Claypotts Road then east on the A930 Monifieth Road, then continue on A930 Ferry Road and Grange Road to West Grange Roundabout. Westbound traffic will follow the same diversion route but vice versa.

Access to Balmossie Brae on the north side of Panmurefield Roundabout will be maintained on the eastbound carriageway. All other locations will be carried out using a 10mph convoy system for safety during working hours and all traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.

Consultation is being carried out with emergency services, local authorities and transport organisations ahead of the project to inform them of the plans and the traffic management that will be in place each week.

A BEAR Scotland spokesperson said: “This resurfacing is essential to ensure the continued safe use of these areas. The improvements, funded by Claymore Roads, are part of our long-term A92 maintenance programme and will help to ensure the route remains fit for purpose for years to come.

“To help limit disruption as much as possible, we’ve planned these works to take place overnight as well as avoiding the busier Friday and Saturday nights, however our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.”
