**UPDATE:  New dates confirmed for £65,000 overnight surfacing improvements on A90 Forfar Road in Dundee**

Landscaping improvements also to take place on A90 Kingsway to minimise overall disruption to road users

 

 

New dates have been confirmed for the £65,000 overnight road improvements for a section of the northbound A90 Forfar Road in Dundee with the project now planned to begin on Sunday night.

The project was delayed due to the poor weather conditions this week, however works are now set to begin from Sunday 17 March for four nights, 7.30pm to 6.30am.  

Traffic management will remain the same as below, with an overnight road closure in place each night on the northbound A90 between the Kingsway/Forfar Road Junction and the Forfar Road/Claverhouse Junction. A signed diversion route will be in place for motorists. Lane closures on the approach to the Claverhouse Junction from Fountainbleau Drive and Claverhouse Road will also be in place for safety. 

To minimise the overall impact to road users in Dundee, essential tree felling works on sections of the A90 Kingsway will also take place from Monday night.  

Six trees have been identified as in need of removal or as being infected with Dutch Elm Disease, with landscaping teams set to fell the trees overnight to minimise the overall impact to motorists.

To ensure the project can be completed safely, alternate lane closures will also be in place on sections of the A90 between Pitkerro Roundabout and Bank Avenue at the same time as the surfacing improvements on the northbound A90 Forfar Road.  These lane closures are expected to continue until Friday night, with short periods when temporary traffic lights will be in use to safely remove the felled trees.

All traffic management will be removed during the daytime.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said:  “We’re pleased to continue with these essential surfacing improvements for the northbound A90 Forfar Road up to Clavehouse Junction after the project was delayed by weather conditions this week.

“Our landscaping team have also noted trees in need of felling on parts of the Kingsway, so we’ve arranged for them to complete the majority of the landscaping works at the same time as the surfacing to limit the overall disruption to motorists in Dundee.   

“These landscaping works involve clearing some of the vegetation next to the A90, promoting healthier growth but also ensuring that any trees or branches that could pose a hazard are removed.

“Both our surfacing teams and landscaping teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.  We encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance, follow any temporary road signs or traffic management which is in place for their safety as well as that as our teams, and to check Traffic Scotland for up to date journey information.”

A90 Forfar Road, Dundee 

 

Works start Monday 11 March for five nights

 

  • Overnight road closures in place for safety each night, 7.30pm-6.30am

 

A section of the A90 northbound carriageway approach to Claverhouse Junction in Dundee is set to benefit from improvements worth £65,000 with works starting next week.

The improvements will involve resurfacing a section of the carriageway almost 200m long, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The overnight works are scheduled to start Monday 11 March and will take five nights to complete. The project will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night with works due to be completed by 6.30am Saturday 16 March.

To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, there will be an overnight road closure in place each night between the Kingsway/Forfar Road Junction and the Forfar Road/Claverhouse Junction. A signed diversion route will be in place for motorists. Lane closures on the approach to the Claverhouse Junction from Fountainbleau Drive and Claverhouse Road will also be in place for safety.

All traffic management will be lifted during the daytime.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This £65,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve this section of the A90 in Dundee by improving the safety of the carriageway and removing any existing surface defects. This will 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 overnight and removing all traffic management during the day. Surfacing works are subject to weather conditions, and efforts will be made to keep relevant stakeholders informed of any delays to the programme. 

“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 up to date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
