Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East network manager, said: “These bridge joint installation works are important to ensure safety for motorists using this section of the M9. A carriageway closure is essential for the safety of workers and road users, however we’ve scheduled the works overnight to minimise disruption. If you do need to travel during these works, please allow some extra time for your journey.”

Consultation has been carried out with emergency services and other relevant stakeholders to share information about the project in advance.
