Works begin on Thursday 28 July for one weekend

  • A contraflow system will be in place


A section of the A90 southbound in Dundee is set to benefit from surfacing improvements, with works set to begin on Thursday 28 July.

The works follow surfacing improvements that took place on a section of the A90 between Myrekirk and Swallow Roundabouts in June. The works will address defects in the road surface on the southbound section of the A90 between Myrekirk and Swallow roundabouts, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.

The project is scheduled to begin on Thursday 28 July and is expected to take place over one weekend. Works are planned to take place consecutively where possible, with all works expected to be complete by 6am Sunday 31 July, subject to weather conditions.


To ensure the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, the programme will take place as follows:


  • Thursday 28 July (one night) – Overnight lane closures will be in place for safety on the A90 northbound and southbound carriageways to allow for contraflow traffic management to be installed ahead of the project.


  • Friday 29 July – Sunday 31 July – A contraflow system will be in place on the A90 from 7.30pm on Friday 29 July until 11pm on Sunday 31 July. Single lane traffic will be travelling in both directions on the northbound carriageway while the A90 southbound carriageway is resurfaced.


  • Sunday 31 July (one night) – The contraflow equipment will be removed overnight and the A90 northbound and southbound will be fully reopened on Monday 1 August at 6am.


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: “This £680,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A90 Kingsway, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists during this project. To help minimise delays as much as possible, we’ve programmed the work to take place over a weekend and planned the operations to be done consecutively where possible to limit the timescale of the project.

“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.”
