£730,000 ESSENTIAL SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A90 Glasslaw to Briggs of Criggie, southbound

 

Works start Friday 28 August for one week

 

A section of the A90 just south of Stonehaven is set to benefit from resurfacing improvements worth £730,000.

The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the southbound section of the A90 between Glasslaw and Briggs of Criggie, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.

The project will begin at 7.30pm on Friday 28 August and will take place over one full week using 24-hour working, with surfacing expected to be completed by 6.30am on Friday 4 September.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and road users, a contraflow system will be in place between the Glasslaw on-slip until Nether Criggie Farm with single lane traffic travelling on the northbound carriageway while the A90 southbound carriageway is resurfaced.

Local access to properties within the scheme extents will be maintained throughout the duration of the works either by signed diversion routes or being escorted through the site extents.

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

Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This £730,000 investment from Transport Scotland will allow us to carry out resurfacing improvements on this section of the A90, helping to ensure our network continues to operate at the highest standard.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists during the project. To help minimise delays as much as possible, we’ve planned the improvements to take place using 24-hour working, and our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safety as possible.

“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.”

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.
