THREE nights of routine bridge maintenance at M90 Junction 10 Craigend Interchange are scheduled to take place from Monday.

The overnight works will allow cyclic maintenance works on all the slip roads and structures at this location.

These works will include cleaning the bridge deck joints, carriageway channel and verge plus drainage clearance and landscaping maintenance.

The routine maintenance will require various slip roads on the interchange to be closed for a total of three nights between 7.30pm to 6.30am each night. Signed diversions will be in place for all closures.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s representative for the North East, said: “These maintenance works are part of our commitment to ensuring that the North East network continues to be of the highest standard and to carry out works with minimum inconvenience to motorists.

“Every effort will be made to minimise the duration of the closures each night so as to minimise disruption to motorists.

“We encourage motorists to plan their journey in advance and to check the Traffic Scotland website for real time information before setting out.”

The works will be carried out by BEAR Scotland and have been planned in consultation with Police Scotland, Perth and Kinross Council and Traffic Scotland.

No more than two slip roads will be closed on any one night.

The diversions in place on each night will be standard diversion routes in the area.
