Motorists using the Earlsgate Roundabout and the A904 between Forth Valley College and Earlsgate Roundabout should prepare for five weeks of overnight disruptions as road improvements are carried out on behalf of Falkirk Council.

From now until early June, Balfour Beatty will carry out the work as part of the ambitious A9/A904 Westfield project, the largest and most significant infrastructure investment under the council's innovative Tax Incremental Finance (TIF) programme.

Scheduled work

Over the five-week period, repairs will be made to the road surface at Earlsgate Roundabout and high friction surfacing applied. New pedestrian crossings will also be installed.

Work to reroute essential utilities such as telecoms, water, and gas lines between Forth Valley College and Earlsgate Roundabout will also be undertaken. This will give utility providers a head start for future service diversions to come.

Traffic management

To minimise daytime disruption, the majority of roadworks will take place at night, from 8pm to 6am. Temporary traffic lights will also be in operation at various locations along the A904 and A9 for most of the five weeks.

Road diversions will be implemented on several key dates. Overnight on Monday, 13 May, traffic from Earlsgate Roundabout to Earls Road will be redirected via Forth Clyde Way. A further overnight diversion will reroute traffic on the A904 through the A9 to Etna Road and Middlefield Road from Monday, 27 May to Friday, 7 June.

Additional information

Please note work is weather dependent and dates are subject to change.

Although the work is expected to cause some noise in the early evening, all operations will comply with local noise regulations to minimise any inconvenience.

Access to all properties, both residential and commercial, will be maintained throughout the five-week period.
