PLANNED ROADWORKS- Tay Road Bridge Contraflow Roadworks 13 September 2021

Submitted by alan.hutchison on Mon, 08/23/2021 - 11:48

We are undertaking roadworks on the Tay Road Bridge for one week commencing in the early hours of MONDAY 13 SEPTEMBER 2021, FINISHING ON SUNDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2021.

The safety of everyone involved in these works is paramount and this means that we must completely separate traffic from contractors. We will do this by installing a CONTRAFLOW traffic management system on the bridge and its approaches. The southbound carriageway will be closed first, followed by the northbound carriageway, with all traffic using one lane of the open carriageway to travel each way. Demarcation posts will separate north and south flowing traffic and we ask that you take extra care when crossing the bridge by keeping your speed down and complying with all signs. A 30mph speed limit will be in place.

Some LOCAL DIVERSIONS to access Newport-on-Tay and Tayport will be sign posted.

NO WIDE LOADS PLEASE. Please note that vehicles or loads greater than 2.6m wide must not use the bridge and must divert via Perth as an alternative. 

EXPECT DELAYS. Please note that we expect congestion in Dundee and Fife during the works and we apologise to all our users for any disruption caused during these essential works.
