Daytime speed limit of 50mph on M90

Issued: 18 May 2023

Speed limit on M90 north of Halbeath – new 50mph daytime limit.

As we move into the next phase of the programme, a temporary speed limit of 50mph will now apply between 6.30am to 7.30pm, which is outwith working hours on the site.

This reduced speed limit is due to temporary barriers being in place to protect the works area during the daytime.

To ensure worker safety a temporary 30mph speed restriction will still apply overnight during site working hours, which is between 7.30pm to 6.30am.

We thank road users for their patience whilst these essential works are progressed.

Speed limit of 30mph on M90

Issued: 11 May 2023

Please be aware that the works are being undertaken overnight between 8pm and 6am to minimise disruption to road users as much as possible.

Whilst lane closures are being used overnight when works are ongoing, temporary barriers require to remain in place to protect the works area during the daytime.

As these barriers have less containment than the permanent installations, the speed limit requires to be reduced to 30mph for safety.

We thank road users for their patience whilst these essential works are progressed.


Amey is undertaking a £1.4 million road safety improvement project on the M90 in Fife north of Halbeath from Monday 8th May to Friday 14th July.

The project will see improvements made to 2.5km of the barrier restraint systems on the central reserve of the M90 between Junction 3 at Halbeath to the Cuddyhouse Road Overbridge.

The scheme, which Amey is completing on behalf of Transport Scotland, will benefit around 33000 vehicles who use this route each day.

The work to upgrade the barrier restraint system will take place overnight between 7.30pm-6.30am from Sunday to Thursday each week. Lane closures will be in place to ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists.

The improvements will be undertaken using a closure of the outside lane of the northbound carriageway between M90 Junction 3 and Cuddyhouse Road overbridge.

Travelling southbound there will be a closure of both lanes of the southbound carriageway between Cuddyhouse Road overbridge and M90 Junction 3, with the hard shoulder in operation for southbound traffic.

Traffic management will be lifted each morning at 6.30am before being put back in place each night at 7.30pm.

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
