Works to take place overnight on Tuesday 21 June

 

 

The A90 southbound deceleration and acceleration lanes at the Walnut Grove junction are set to benefit from £35,000 worth of surfacing improvements with work set to take place later this month.

The project will involve teams carrying out essential surfacing improvements to ensure the integrity and safety of the trunk road network at this location.

The project is scheduled to get take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am on Tuesday 21 June.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, the off and on-slip roads will be closed each night with traffic being diverted via Barnhill Circulatory (Junction 11). For safety, a lane closure will also be in place on the A90 southbound overnight. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.

Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing improvements to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements.

Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “These surfacing improvements will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A90, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the works overnight.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential works on the A90. We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
