Work underway ahead of weekend surfacing improvements on northbound A92 Hillside to Marywell


Works to continue over two weeks


A section of the A92 north of Portlethen is set to benefit from carriageway resurfacing improvements with work underway this week.  

The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the northbound carriageway on the A92 between Hillside & Marywell Junctions, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.

The £340,000 project will continue over two weeks with all improvements expected to be completed by 6.30am on Thursday 6 August. To allow these works to be carried out in a safe and efficient manner restrictions will be in place on the network as follows;


  • Monday 27 July – Single lane closures on both the northbound and southbound carriageway will be in place 24 hours a day from 6.30am on Monday until 7.30pm Friday 31 July to allow teams to construct a new crossover for traffic management to be installed ahead of the surfacing project.


·         Friday 31 July to Monday 3 AugustTo ensure roadworkers and road users are kept safe during the surfacing improvements, a contraflow system will be in place on the A92 between Portlethen & Marywell Junctions from 7.30pm on Friday 31 July until 6.30am Monday 3 August.


·         Monday 3 August to Thursday 6 August - Once the surfacing improvements are completed, single lane closures will then be in place 24 hours a day on both the northbound and southbound carriageways to allow teams to safely reinstall the new barriers, with work expected to be completed by 6.30am Thursday 6 August. 

Local access to properties within the scheme extents will be maintained throughout the duration of the works via signed diversion routes.

Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing improvements to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This £340,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A92, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the works under a contraflow system which will help keep traffic moving.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A92. We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
