The roadworks will be taking place this week.

 

Roadworks are due to take place this week on two busy stretches of the A90, with work beginning tonight between Stonehaven and Bridge of Muchalls, while work began on Sunday for improvement works on the southbound carriageway near Marykirk.

The £130,000 works between Bridge of Muchalls and Stonehaven start on Tuesday March 4 for four nights, will involve repairs to the surface of both northbound lanes along with refreshment of the road markings.

A convoy system of traffic management with a 10mph speed limit will be in place each night between 7.30pm and 6.30am, to help keep workers and motorists safe during the works.

Meanwhile, a £198,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see a 2.4km stretch of the A90 southbound, from the Marykirk /Thornton Junction, undergo improvement.

The works, which started on Sunday for 7 nights (excluding Friday and Saturday nights), will involve repairs to the surface of both southbound lanes along and will see the road markings refreshed.

Traffic management will be in place each night between 7.30pm and 6.30am. A convoy system with a 10mph speed limit will be in place to help keep workers and motorists safe during this time.

Commenting on all of the works, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “These works will repair a number of potholes and will improve the general condition of the road for motorists.

“The works are being carried out overnight to minimise delays. We would, however, encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time for travel.”

The works are being carried out by Breedon Aggregates and Euromark on behalf of BEAR Scotland.

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