M9 Junctions 4 - 3

31 October 2019

Three Week Maintenance Programme

ESSENTIAL ROAD SAFETY MAINTENANCE ON M9 COMMENCES THURSDAY 31ST OCTOBER

Essential maintenance work will take place on the M9 between Junctions 4 and 3 from Thursday 31st October until Thursday 21st November 2019. The scheme will be carried out by a combination of daytime and night-time working.

The works will benefit over 19,000 vehicles using this section of the M9 each day, by improving the safety of the carriageway and its central reserve.

Southbound Carriageway

To allow this scheme to take place there will be a lane two closure of the M9 southbound carriageway for the duration of the scheme with two lanes (lane one and the hard shoulder) open to traffic during the day (6am to 8pm).  During night-time working hours (8pm - 6am) an additional lane of the southbound carriageway will be closed with traffic running on the hard shoulder to maintain traffic flow along the route.

Northbound Carriageway

At selected times during the scheme a lane two closure of the northbound carriageway will occur.  These closures will be notified through Traffic Scotland and our social media outlets.  During these northbound closures lane one and the hard shoulder of the northbound carriageway will remain open to maintain traffic flow along the route.

There will be no full closure of the M9 for this scheme and traffic is expected to flow as normal during the lane closures.
