Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s South East Network manager, said: “These works will improve the road quality and safety for motorists. Carriageway and slip road closures are essential for the safety of workers and motorists, however we’ve scheduled the works to take place overnight to minimise any disruption. We will do all we can to complete the project as quickly as possible.”
