A £390,000 project to carry out road improvements on the A90 Aberdeen to Dundee road will begin today.
Construction work will take place at two sections near Stonehaven from today lasting four weeks.
Bear Scotland workers will put in place drainage and resurfacing improvements on the southbound part of the A90 near the coastal town, as well as build a new central crossover section in the central reservation near Cowie Bridge.
The teams will then carry out further barrier works at Stonehaven and improve drainage near the southbound slip roads at Spurryhillock.
There will be lane closures during stages of the work, with reduced speed limits also in place to ensure the safety of staff and motorists.
Andy Thompson, Bear Scotland’s north-east representative said: “This important £390,000 project near Stonehaven will upgrade the drainage systems and carriageway structure on this section of the A90, helping to create a safer road surface, with resurfacing works ensuring the road continues to operate smoothly.
“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both our workforce as well as road users and we’ll do all we can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.
“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams work to carry out these essential works on this stretch of the A90.
“We encourage road users to plan their journey in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for real time journey information and leaving some extra time to reach their destination.”
