A convoy system will be in operation for two weeks once improvement work begins on the A87 between Auchtertyre and Kirkton

The resurfacing works, costing £300,000, will see improvements to a 1.4km section of the A87, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

Resurfacing is due to start on Thursday 8 December and will take up to two weeks to complete. The improvement works are scheduled to take place between 7am and 7pm each week day, with no works planned over the weekend.

The A87 will remain open throughout the improvements however a 10mph convoy system of traffic management will be in place to allow the works to be carried out safely for the protection of the motorists as well as road workers. The convoy system will be removed outside of working hours however a temporary speed restriction of 30mph will remain as traffic will be running on a temporary surface.
