Work starts Monday 4 September for nine days


A section of the A90 Brechin Bypass is set to benefit from £260,000 improvement works starting next week.

The works will address defects in the road and create a smoother and safer journey for motorists. 

The works, which start on Monday 4 September, will be carried out over nine consecutive days. This will involve isolated repairs to the concrete surface of both the northbound and southbound carriageways to help ensure the road remains in a safe condition for years to come.

The improvement works will be carried out under two contraflows to ensure that teams as well as motorists are kept safe.  The works will start on Monday 4 September with a contraflow in place on the southbound carriageway, before it is then switched to the northbound carriageway from Friday 8 September.  The scheme is due to be completed by Wednesday 13 September.  

Both contraflows will have a 50mph restriction in place for the duration of the road improvements.  Due to the location of the contraflow, the B966 Slip roads will be closed when the contraflow is in place with a signed diversion for motorists.  Traffic shall be diverted to either the Stracathro junction or to the A935 Brechin junction where motorists will be able to return to the B966.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These works will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other issues which will improve the general condition of the road for motorists.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.  We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information and leave extra time to reach their destination.”

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