Bus stop improvement measures on the A92 Freuchie begin Tuesday 18th July
Works begin Tuesday 18 July
Bus stop improvements are planned for a section of the A92 at Freuchie with works starting next week.
The £15,000 improvements involve installing bus shelters and road markings as well as a crossing point to enhance the bus stop provisions in place in Freuchie.
The works will get underway on Tuesday 18 July and are expected to take up to two weeks to complete. The improvements will take place during off-peak hours between 9.30am and 3.30pm to minimise any impact to road users.
To allow the works to take place safely and for the protection of road workers and road users, temporary traffic lights will be in place on the A92 during working hours. Local road closures restricting access onto the A92 from both Freuchie Mill Road and the B936 will be in place each day, with traffic diverted via New Inn Roundabout and Freuchie High Street. Traffic management and local diversions will be removed outside of working hours each day.
Consultation has been carried out with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the works to inform them of the planned upgrades.
Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “Safety is a top priority for both BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland and this scheme, is part of our commitment to that.
“The improvements planned in Freuchie will mean easier and safer access to the bus stop facilities for all pedestrians, including improved access points and upgraded road markings.
“The works are being carried out during off-peak daytime hours to minimise the impact to motorists, however, we encourage road users to plan their journey in advance and allow some extra journey time.”
