A southbound section of the A90 at Portlethen is set to benefit from £125,000 resurfacing works starting next week.

This section of the A90 is used by around 18,000 vehicles every day and it now requires upgrading to create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The resurfacing improvements will begin on Tuesday, October 18, at 7.30pm and are programmed to take place over four nights, finishing at 6.30am on Saturday, October 22.

A convoy system will be in place during the works to ensure the safety of the work force and the travelling public. Consultation has taken place with local residents in advance of the resurfacing to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

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

“The resurfacing improvements has been scheduled to take place overnight to limit the impact to motorists, however we encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

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