Overnight work starts Friday 16 August for six nights

Overnight road closure in place for safety from Monday 19 August for five nights, 7.30pm – 6.30am


A section of the A90 at Inverugie Bridge, north of Peterhead, is set to benefit from £305,000 resurfacing improvements starting later this week. The project will address defects in the road surface which will help create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The resurfacing project will begin on Friday 16 August and is programmed to take place over six nights, with the improvement works finishing at 6.30am on Saturday 24 August. No works shall take place on Saturday or Sunday nights.

A 10mph convoy system will be in place on Friday 16 August for the first night of improvements. Due to the narrow width of the road on this section of the A90, a full overnight road closure will be in place from Monday 19 August for the remaining five nights to ensure the safety of the work force and road users during the improvements.  The closure will be removed during the daytime and the A90 open as normal.

A signed diversion will be in place for road users during the overnight closures.  Northbound motorists will be diverted via Howe O Buchan Roundabout onto A950 to Mintlaw, then onto the A952 northbound where they can rejoin the A90 at Cortes, and vice-versa for southbound motorists.  Consultation has taken place with local residents in advance of the resurfacing to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Full use of the overnight road closure will be made, with teams carrying out road-stud refreshment projects as well as cyclic maintenance work to maximise the work which can be carried out during the road closure.  

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These works have been designed to improve the general condition and safety of this section of the A90 for motorists. 

“The overnight road closures are essential to ensure the safety of both our workforce as well as road users, and our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“We encourage motorists to plans their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

All waste martials resulting from these road works will be re-cycled in accordance with Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) policies and procedures.
