Works start Wednesday 22 June for two nights


A section of the A90 southbound in Dundee is set to benefit from surfacing improvements worth £70,000, with works set to get underway on Wednesday 22 June.

The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the A90 southbound at the Graham Street Junction on the Kingsway, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.

The project is scheduled to begin on Wednesday 22 June and is expected to take place over two nights. Works will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night, with all works expected to be completed by 6.30am Friday 24 June, subject to weather conditions.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, a lane closure with temporary traffic signals and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours. In addition, access to and from Graham Street Junction will restricted overnight. Road users wishing to access the A90 from Graham Street will be diverted onto Barnes Avenue then Old Glamis Road to A90 southbound (Kingsway). For traffic wishing to access Graham Street Junction from the A90 the diversion will be onto Old Glamis Road then Barnes Avenue onto Graham Street.

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

Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This £70,000 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.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the project overnight and removing traffic management during the day.

“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.”
