McInnes welcomes A90 improvements

North East MSP, Alison McInnes, has welcomed the news that Transport Scotland is to carryout improvements to the A90 trunk road.

The Liberal Democrat MSP commented: “I am pleased that so much work is in hand to improve this vital link.

“The A90 is a key artery for the North East. The past winter has caused a lot of problems, and this has contributed to the backlog.

“Resurfacing work costing £1.1 million has recently been completed between the Charleston flyover and Bridge of Dee in Aberdeen, but much more needs to be done.”

Mrs McInnes was told that resurfacing is now planned for Charleston to Damhead (northbound), North Water Bridge to Hatton (northbound), at Glasslaw (southbound), and at Stonehaven (southbound).

Patching is to take place at (all southbound) Laurencekirk, Fordoun junction, Glendoick, and Happas; (all northbound) Fordoun bypass, Starr Farm, Powrie Brae, Drumnagair, and at Oatyhill; and finally (both carriageways) in Aberdeen, Keithock to North Water Bridge, and at Foveran.

Drainage improvements are scheduled between Ellon and Fraserburgh and at Drumlithie.
