£160,000 CARRIAGEWAY RESURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A90 FRASERBURGH

 

Resurfacing works start Monday 18 March for 10 days

 

  • Road closure in place for safety during the project on week days only

 

A section of the A90 in Fraserburgh between Links Road and High Street is set to benefit from over £160,000 worth of carriageway improvements with works scheduled to start next week.

 

The resurfacing improvements will allow teams to carry out surfacing repairs to sections of the route which will create a smoother, quieter road surface on this section of the A90, improving road safety as well as reducing noise on the surrounding residents.

 

The improvements are planned to take place in two phases:  

 

  • A90 Links Roads to Commerce Street – Monday 18 March for five days, 7am to 5.30pm 

The project will begin on Monday 18 March for five days, 7am to 5.30pm each day. For safety, a full closure of the A90 will be in place 24-hours a day to protect roadworkers during the improvements but also to keep motorists away from the open excavations in the carriageway.  Traffic will be diverted along the A981 Strichen Road, onto Boothby road and finally onto the A98 Watermill Road where they can then re-join High Street. During the first phase, Victoria Street will remain open under temporary traffic lights but will provide no access onto the A90. Local access will be maintained for Barrack Lane during the improvements.

 

  • A90 Commerce Street to High Street – Monday 25 March for five days, 7am to 5.30pm

The second phase of the surfacing improvements will begin the following week on Monday 25 March and will take place over five days.   The A90 will be closed for safety at this section 24-hours a day for safety reasons, with traffic being diverted along the A981 Strichen Road, onto Boothby road and finally onto the A98 Watermill Road where they can then re-join the high street. Commerce Street and Mid Street will remain open under temporary traffic lights but will provide no access onto the A90. Local access will be maintained for Barrack Lane and Love Lane however Hanover Street and Firthside Street will be closed with no access to or from the A90.

 

No works are programmed for Saturday and Sunday and the A90 open as normal. There will be no parking permitted along the A90 within each phasing for the duration of the works for safety reasons and also to allow teams full access to the carriageway.

Consultation has taken place with residents and relevant stakeholders in advance of the improvements to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience throughout the project.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This £160,000 improvement project for the A90 in Fraserburgh will allow us to repair a number of cracks, potholes and any other issues on the carriageway through the town.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists during the project, however we’ve taken steps to minimise disruption by planning these works to take place in two phases through the town over ten days to break up the overall impact to residents and the local community.  We’ve also arranged the project to avoid working on Saturday and Sunday to further minimise disruption.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete these works as quickly and safely as possible.  We thank motorists and the local community for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these works in Fraserburgh, and 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.”

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting www.trafficscotland.org,  twitter at @trafficscotland or the mobile site my.trafficscotland.org. 

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