M9 Junctions 7 and 8 Gantry Refurbishment

10 February 2020

Overnight Maintenance

ESSENTIAL GANTRY REFURBISHMENT ON THE M9 COMMENCES MONDAY 24th FEBRUARY

UPDATE: Due to adverse weather conditions this scheme has been rescheduled from 10th to 24th February 2020.

Essential gantry refurbishment works will take place overnight on the M9 between Junctions 7 and 8 from Monday 24th February until Friday 6th March 2020. The scheme will be carried out between the hours of 8pm and 6am, each night.

The works will benefit around 20,000 vehicles using this section of the M9 each day, by improving the condition of the gantry signs and providing clear advance direction signage for onward journeys.

To allow this scheme to take place there will be full closures of the M9 carriageway (three nights northbound, three nights southbound) between Junction 7 and Junction 8 with a signed diversion route in operation.

Traffic intending to use the M9 northbound or M876 southbound will be diverted on the M9 at Junction 7 towards M876 Junction 3. From here, traffic will join the A905 South and at South Bellsdyke Roundabout, traffic will take the second exit onto the A88, Bellsdyke Road. Traffic will proceed on this route, continuing straight on at four consecutive roundabouts and upon reaching North Broomage Roundabout, northbound and southbound traffic will split. Traffic intending to travel southbound will take the second exit onto the M876. Northbound traffic will take the third exit to join the A9 and will continue on this route for 4.5 miles. Traffic will proceed straight on at three consecutive roundabouts and at Greencornhills Roundabout, will take the first exit onto the A91, Pirnhall Road. At Pirnhall Roundabout, traffic will take the fifth exit to rejoin the M9 northbound and diversion will end.

M9 southbound traffic will be diverted to exit via Junction 9 at Pirnhall Roundabout and will take the second exit onto the A91. From here, traffic will follow the same diversion route for M9 northbound traffic, as detailed above, but in reverse.

M876 northbound traffic will be directed to exit the M876 J2 towards Larbert and at North Broomage Roundabout will leave the roundabout via the third exit to join the A88, Bellsdyke Road. Traffic will follow the route for 3.5 miles continuing straight on at four consecutive roundabouts to reach South Bellsdyke Roundabout. From here, traffic will turn left onto the A905 and will be able to rejoin the M876 from Bowtrees Interchange where diversion will end.
