Essential Overnight Repairs Planned for M90 Slip Craigend Bridge

Repairs to the structure at the Craigend Interchange in Perth are set to commence on Sunday 10th of July. The plan is to replace the damaged bridge parapet and adjoining safety barrier system on the overbridge, which carries the traffic from M90 junction 10 from Friarton towards Broxden.

The work is scheduled to get underway on Sunday the 10th of July and will last around three weeks. Works are planned to take place between 7.30pm and 5:30am each night. No works will take place on Friday or Saturday nights.

Speaking about the works Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “These essential works will repair the section of damaged parapet and allow the removal of the temporary barrier, returning the slip to normal use.

“The traffic management proposed is essential for keeping our operatives safe as well as motorists.

“We have taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists by carrying the works overnight and our teams will do their best to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.”

To ensure the safety of the roadworkers, as well as motorists, the bridge and the M90 slip will be closed during working hours, with both open during non-working hours.

A single lane closures of the M90 and A912 will be in place whilst works take place overhead and the traffic will be diverted via junction 9 to Bridge of Earn. All work is expected to be complete by 5:30am on Friday 29th of July, subject to weather conditions.

Mr Stewart added:” We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential repairs on the M90.

“We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
