Work on a £90,000 upgrade of a major roundabout in the city is to start on Monday.

A section of the A92 at Scott Fyffe will be closed for four nights for resurfacing improvements to be carried out.

The work will be carried out between 7.30pm and 6.30am and is expected to be completed by Friday, October 5.

Teams will be resurfacing the whole of the roundabout surface to create a smoother and safer carriageway for road users.

The roundabout will be completely closed to allow workers to safely resurface the road.

Approaches to the roundabout will be closed, including the main Kingsway approach from the A972, those from the A92 Greendykes Road and Arbroath Road, the B961 Douglas Road and the approach from the B959 Arbroath Road.

Diversions will be in place each night and all traffic management will be lifted during the daytime.

Consultation was carried out with Dundee City Council, local businesses and emergency services to inform them of the work and share traffic management details.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East representative, said: “The £90,000 overnight project will upgrade the condition of the Scott Fyffe roundabout, helping to create a smoother and safer road surface and address any potholes or other road defects in the carriageway.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of our workforce, as well as road users.

“We’ll do all we can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams work to carry out this essential work.

“We encourage road users to plan their journey in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for real time journey information and leaving some extra time to reach their destination.”
