Drivers have been advised to leave extra time for journeys as resurfacing work gets under way on a section of Dundee’s Kingsway.
Part of improvements worth almost £190,000, Transport Scotland says that the project will ensure the eastbound section of Kingsway between Strathmartine roundabout and Old Glamis roundabout, used by about 20,000 vehicles every day, continues to operate safely for years to come.
The resurfacing improvements will get under way today, for five nights, from 7.30pm-6.30am.
The works are expected to be completed by 6.30am on Saturday.
A full road closure between Strathmartine Roundabout and Old Glamis Roundabout will be in place with a short, signed diversion route in place for all eastbound Kingsway traffic.
There will also be a signed diversion route installed for the local traffic that would normally join the A90 Kingsway using Clive Road and Foster Road. Westbound traffic will be unaffected.
A consultation has been carried out with the local authority and emergency services to make them aware of the arrangements during the overnight works, and local residents and other stakeholders have also been informed of the project.
Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north-east unit representative, said: “We only ever close roads when it is absolutely essential for the protection of our teams as well as motorists during the improvements.
“Our teams will endeavour to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible to limit any impact.”
