BEAR Scotland is planning essential road marking and maintenance works on sections of the motorway which will impact on a number of junctions.

Work includes reinstating white lines and stud, gully cleaning for drainage, road sweeping and litter picking.

It has been programmed to be undertaken over nine nights, from Monday November 23 to Friday December 4.

It will be necessary to close the carriageway to ensure the safety of workers,

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s south east network manager, said: “It is important that we address the sections of M9 and create a better road condition in the longer term.

“Scheduling the cyclic maintenance activity at the same time as the markings means less disruption overall.

“We’ll do all we can to complete the work as quickly and safely as possible and thank motorists as well as the local community for their patience while we carry out this project.”
