£130,000 Improvement Project for A90 Cowie Bridge near Stonehaven

Overnight works start Sunday 3 March for five weeks


£130,000 worth of maintenance works are scheduled to take place on the A90 Cowie Bridge near Stonehaven starting Sunday 3 March.

The works will involve upgrading the existing safety barriers and bridge parapets to help ensure the bridge continues to function safely for years to come.

The overnight works are scheduled to start Sunday 3 March and will take five weeks to complete. The project will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night, with no works taking place on Saturday or Sunday nights with the exception of the first weekend of the project. 

To ensure the safety of road workers as well as motorists, single lane closures will be in place on each carriageway during the improvements. All traffic management will be removed during the daytime and at weekends.

Consultation has taken place with the local authority and emergency services in advance of the works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience. 

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These essential maintenance works will help ensure Cowie Bridge remains in a safe working condition for years to come.  

“We’ve planned these works to minimise disruption as much as possible by scheduling the works to take place overnight and ensuring at least one lane on each side of the carriageway will remain open on the bridge during the project.  We’re also avoiding working on Saturday on Sunday nights during the project with the exception of the first weekend when our teams will be working overnight to ensure the project can be completed in the shortest available timescale.  

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential works on Cowie Bridge. We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information and leave some extra time for their journey.”
