Resurfacing works worth £200,000 will be carried out on the southbound M9 at Falkirk, between Junction 7 (Kinnaird House) and Junction 5 (Cadgers Brae).

This section of road is used by around 22,500 vehicles each day and this investment by Transport Scotland will ensure that the M9 continues to operate safely for years to come.

The works will begin today (Friday) at 8pm and be completed by Monday, April 14, at 6am.

A contra-flow traffic management system will be in place for the duration of the works with one lane in operation for each direction of traffic.

A speed limit of 40mph will be in place for the safety of road workers and motorists.

The Junction 6 (Earlsgate) southbound off slip road will be closed for the duration of the works.

Traffic wishing to use the Junction 6 southbound off slip road will be diverted south on the M9 to Junction 5 where they can exit the motorway and resume their normal journey.

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s operating company representative, said: “These works are being carried out over the weekend when traffic flows are lower to minimise disruption to motorists.

‘‘However, we would encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance where possible.”
