A90 Luthermuir to Oatyhill Northbound


Works start Tuesday 30 October for six nights


 A section of the A90 northbound carriageway near Luthermuir is set to benefit from resurfacing improvements worth £240,000 with works scheduled to start Tuesday 30 October for six nights.

The investment from Transport Scotland will ensure that the busy section of the A90 between the Luthermuir B974 Junction and the Oatyhill Junction continues to operate safely for years to come.

The overnight resurfacing works will get underway on Tuesday 30 October and will take approximately six nights to complete. The project will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night with all works expected to be completed by Wednesday morning on 7 November. No works will be conducted over the weekend.

To keep road workers and motorists safe during working hours, traffic management will be in place during the overnight project. On Tuesday 30 there will be overnight lane closures on both sides of the carriageway on the A90 at Marykirk with a 50mph speed limit while works are taking place on the B974 crossovers. From Wednesday 31 October to Tuesday 6 November, excluding the weekend, works will be carried out on the main northbound carriageway with a 10mph convoy in operation for safety during the overnight project.

The Landend Thornton Junction will be closed to both northbound and southbound traffic whilst works are taking place within the area of the junction. There will be signed diversion routes in place for motorists.

There will be no traffic management in place over the weekend.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This £240,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve this section of the A90 by removing existing carriageway defects, creating 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 overnight and removing all traffic management during the weekends to further limit any impact to motorists.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential works on the A90. 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.”

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