A96 West of Huntly Roundabout

Works begin Sunday 10 September for six nights


Resurfacing improvements worth over £250,000 are set to be carried out on the A96 from the Huntly Roundabout West towards Westerton Farm.

The project will involve resurfacing the carriageway in two areas between the Huntly Roundabout and Westerton Farm covering the full width of the road for over 1.3km.  The investment from Transport Scotland will address cracks or potholes in the surface, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The works will begin on Sunday 10th September for six nights, between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night.   To keep road workers and the travelling public safe during the improvements a 10mph convoy system and temporary traffic lights will be in operation during working hours.  Temporary traffic lights will also be required when working at the A920 Dufftown Junction and Huntly Roundabout to ensure traffic can pass through the work site safely, and to protect the teams working at each location.  The traffic management will be lifted outside of working hours during the daytime, however a speed limit of 30mph will be in place as traffic will be running over a temporary road surface.  

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “The investment from Transport Scotland will remove defects in this section of the A96 to create a safer, smoother and improved road surface for road users.

“We’ve scheduled the works to take place overnight to minimise disruption. Our teams will look to 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 complete their journey.”

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting or twitter @trafficscotland.

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

The works are being carried out by Breedon Aggregates Ltd, and WJ on behalf of BEAR Scotland.  Works have been planned in consultation with Aberdeenshire Council and Police Scotland.
