New safety barriers are to be installed at two locations on the A90 at Nether Careston as part of a £100,000 investment.

The installation forms part of a strategy to improve road safety. The project involves installing new safety barriers at two locations in the northbound carriageway between Nether Careston Farm Access and Careston Junction. As part of the works sections of the central reservation will also be upgraded. Works are scheduled to begin on Monday, August 29 for three weeks.

The A90 will remain open throughout the works, however for the protection of roadworkers as well as motorists lane closures will be in place for the duration of the improvements.

Commenting on the project, 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 safety barrier improvements scheme is part of our commitment to that.

“Whilst no significant delays are expected, we’d encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date information and allow a little extra time for travel.”
