Sections of the A90 near Laurencekirk are to have their safety improved as part of a new project that will get underway soon.

Two locations on the northbound carriageway between the A937 Laurencekirk Junction and Mill of Conveth Junction are to have safety barriers installed as part of a £147,000 operation.

And parts of the central reservation will also be upgraded as part of the plans.

The work will begin on Monday, July 25 and should take three weeks to complete.

It will be carried out using lane closures, so the road will not need to be completely closed during the installations.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north-east representative, said: “Safety is a top priority for both BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland and the delivery of this scheme is part of our commitment to ongoing improvement across our network.

“Whilst the A90 will remain open while we install the new safety barriers, we’d ask motorists to be aware of the traffic management in place and check Traffic Scotland for journey information in advance.”
