A section of the northbound A90 south of Laurencekirk at North Water Bridge is set to benefit from £197,000 resurfacing improvements.

The investment from Transport Scotland will ensure that the northbound section from North Water Bridge to the B974 Marykirk Junction, used by almost 10,000 vehicles every day, continues to operate safely for years to come.

The overnight resurfacing improvements will get underway on Sunday December 18 for five nights with the works expected to finish by 6.30am on Friday December 23. A 10mph convoy system will be in place each night from 7.30pm to 6.30am to keep road workers as well as motorists safe. The convoy system will be lifted outside of working hours to minimise disruption to road users.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “These works will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other surfacing issues to help improve the general condition and safety of the road. We’ve scheduled these works to take place overnight to help minimise delays.”
