Motorists using the A90 southbound near Dundee are to benefit from an improved road surface as surfacing improvements worth £650,000 are set to get underway on Friday 26 November at 7.30pm.
The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the southbound section of the A90 between New Grange and Muiryfaulds Junction, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists
The project is scheduled to begin on Friday 26 November at 7.30pm and will take place over eight days, with operations programmed where possible to take place consecutively. The improvements are expected to be completed by 6.30am on Saturday 3 December, subject to weather conditions.
To allow these works to be carried out in a safe and efficient manner, traffic management restrictions will be required on the network as follows:
Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the surfacing improvements to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements.
Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This £650,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A90, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
“Due to the nature of the works, contraflow traffic management is necessary, and motorists might experience some delays. We have planned for operations to take place consecutively where possible to complete the project as quickly and safely as we can to minimise disruption.
“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements 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.”
