A90 Glasslaw, southbound


Works start Sunday 2 June for two weeks


A section of the A90 southbound carriageway at Glasslaw is set to benefit from £20,000 worth of essential maintenance starting next week. 

The project will involve teams carrying out drainage and crossover improvements on the southbound section of the A90 between the Glasslaw on-slip and the Lumgair Junction, creating a safer road surface for motorists.

The project is outlined as follows:


  • A90 Glasslaw, southbound drainage improvements – Sunday 2 June to Saturday 8 June (six days)

The project will begin on Sunday 2 June and will involve drainage improvements to the route for six days. For safety, there will be a single lane closure on the southbound carriageway in place for 24-hours a day with a 50mph speed limit in place to protect roadworkers and motorists during the improvements. Works are expected to be finished by 6.30am Saturday 8 June.  The northbound A90 will be unaffected during drainage improvements.


  • A90 Glasslaw, southbound crossover improvements – Monday 10 June to Saturday 15 June (five days)

The second phase of the project will begin on Monday 10 June with improvements made to the two crossovers taking place over six days. To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, single lane closures on both the northbound and southbound carriageway will be in place continuously with a reduced speed limit of 50mph.


All traffic management is expected to be removed by 6.30am on Saturday 15 June

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said: “This essential £20,000 project near Glasslaw will upgrade the drainage systems, helping to create a safer road surface and improve ease of maintenance in future. The crossover improvement works that will follow aim to improve the future usability of the crossovers.

“Traffic management is necessary to ensure the safety of the workforce and road users during the project. Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams work to carry out these essential works on this stretch of the A90.  We encourage road users to plan their journey in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for real time journey information and leaving some extra time to reach their destination.”

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