Motorists face some travel disruption as resurfacing work takes place on the M9 between April 3 and 4.

One mile of the southbound carriageway approaching Junction 1A will be closed from 8pm-6am and a signed diversion will be in operation.

Traffic travelling southbound on the M9 will be diverted to exit Junction 2 onto the B8046 and will turn right to join the A904 until reaching the Echline roundabout.

From here, traffic will take the third exit to join the A90, before returning to the M9 southbound via Junction 1A.

Public service provider Amey say the essential maintenance will benefit around 13,000 vehicles who use this stretch of the road by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for future, more extensive maintenance.

The work, valued around £33,000, has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, the emergency services, the Forth Bridge Operating Company, West Lothian Council and City of Edinburgh Council.
