We have been advised of resurfacing work on the southbound M9 on the approach to Junction 1A which will take place overnight, between 8pm on Monday 3 April and 6am on Tuesday 4 April 2017.

This scheme will benefit around 13,000 vehicles, which use this stretch of the M9 each day, by improving the condition of the carriageway and reducing the need for future, more extensive maintenance.

To allow this work to take place there will be a full evening closure of 1 mile of the southbound carriageway of the M9 approaching Junction 1A. A signed diversion will be in operation.

Traffic travelling southbound on the M9 will be diverted to exit at Junction 2 onto the B8046 and will turn right to join the A904. Traffic will then proceed in a southerly direction until reaching Echline Roundabout. From here, traffic will take the 3rd exit to join the A90, before returning to the M9 southbound via Junction 1A.

The work, valued around £33,000, has been planned in consultation with Transport Scotland, Traffic Scotland, the emergency services, the Forth Bridge Operating Company, West Lothian Council and City of Edinburgh Council.
