Resurfacing work to start on A90 this weekend

A section of the northbound A90 between Barnhill and Kinfauns near Perth, as well as the northbound off-slip at Barnhill Interchange, is set to undergo road maintenance improvements costing almost £390,000 this weekend.

The investment by Transport Scotland will ensure that the stretch between the Barnhill and Kinfauns junctions — which is used by about 18,500 vehicles every day — continues to operate safely for years to come.

The resurfacing work is due to get underway on Friday at 7.30pm and will continue throughout the weekend until 6.30am on Monday.

To help keep workers and road users safe during the work, a contraflow system will be in place on the southbound carriageway between the Barnhill and Kinfauns junctions to direct traffic away from the area.

A reduced speed limit of 50mph will also be in place during the contraflow.

Due to the location of the resurfacing operations, the Kinfauns Castle junction will be closed for the duration of the work.

A signed local diversion route will be in place for traffic normally using the Kinfauns Castle junction and access will be maintained for local residents.

Preliminary work will take place overnight on Thursday to prepare for the traffic management arrangements ahead of the work beginning on Friday evening.
