The M90 will be closed southbound between Junction 1 and Junction 1A of the M9 from 8pm until 6am on the nights of April 19, 20 and 21.

During these closures, a signed diversion route will be in place for southbound traffic travelling via Junction 1 of the M90, the A90, the A902 (Maybury Road) to the Gogar roundabout and along the A8 (Glasgow Road) to Junction 1 of the M9. This diversion will add an estimated 13 minutes and 6.9 miles to affected journeys.

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and stakeholders to share information about the project.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network Manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will improve safety and ride quality for motorists on this section of the M90.

“Road closures are essential for safety, however we’ve planned the works to take place overnight to minimise disruption. We will do all we can to complete the project as quickly as possible.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience and encourage them to plan ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information.”
