These diversions will add an estimated 3 minutes and 1.5 miles to affected journeys.

Tommy Deans, BEAR Scotland’s south east network manager, said: “These surfacing improvements will address and repair defects in the road surface, such as potholes or cracks, creating safer and smoother journeys for motorists.

“It is essential for the safety of road workers and motorists that we close the carriageway during these works, however we’ve scheduled them overnight to minimise any disruption.

“We thank motorists for their patience.”
