A 40mph speed limit will be in force on the M9 for the next two weekends for resurfacing works.

Only one lane will be open on a 700 metre northbound stretch at Plean between junction 8 (Hill of Kinnaird) and junction 9 (Bannockburn) from 8 p.m. on Friday (July 5) until 6 a.m. on Monday (July 8).

The same contra-flow system on the same days at the same times the following weekend from July 12-15 will also be in place.

Transport Scotland say the £250,000 investment in the works, which were postponed due to bad weather last month, will help ensure the M9 can operate safely for years to come.

BEAR Scotland’s Ian Stewart said: “These works are being carried out over two weekends to minimise delays to motorists. We would however encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance where possible.”

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.
