Works to take place on A90

Motorists who use the A90 are being advised that improvement works are set to take place on the southbound carriageway from the Marykirk/Thornton junction.

The works, which are part of a 198,000 investment by Transport Scotland, will see a 2.4km stretch of the carriageway under go repairs to the road surface and also includes road markings refreshed.

The works start on Sunday (March 2) and will take place for seven nights (excluding Friday and Saturday nights). Traffic management will be in place each night between 7.30 p.m. and 6.30 a.m. A convoy system with a 10mph speed limit will be in place to help keep workers and motorists safe during this time.

Commenting on the works, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East unit representative, said: “These works will repair a number of potholes and will improve the general condition of the road for motorists.

“The works are being carried out overnight to minimise delays. We would, however, encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time for travel.”

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

The works are being carried out by Breedon Aggregates and Euromark on behalf of BEAR Scotland.
