£450,000 Improvement Project for A96 Carden Bridge, Oyne

Project starts Monday 9 September for 10 weeks

 

Major improvements worth £450,000 are to take place on A96 Carden Bridge near Oyne, Aberdeenshire, with works scheduled to begin early next month.

Extensive repairs will be completed to the concrete arches and masonry parapets of the bridge as well as scour repairs to the central bridge pier. These repairs will ensure that the bridge remains safe to support the busy trunk road for years to come.

The project is set to begin on Monday 9 September and is programmed to take ten weeks to complete.  To keep roadworkers as well as motorists safe during the project and to ensure repairs can be completed in the shortest possible timescale, temporary traffic lights will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for the duration of the project.

Some short overnight closures of the A96 may be required for safety reasons during essential operations requiring a crane for delivery of materials, however any night-time closures will be advertised in advance.   Traffic will be diverted locally should overnight closures of the bridge be required, with all diversion routes signed in advance for motorists.

Road users are warned to expect some delays during peak times and are encouraged to plan ahead.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This major repair project will help ensure that Carden Bridge remains in a safe working condition for years to come.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of our work force as well as road users during this project.  Should our contractor require the road to be closed for safety for a short period when using a crane to carry out operations from the centre of the road, we’ll advise all relevant stakeholders and ensure diversions are signed in advance.  We’ll do everything possible to keep all disruption to a minimum during these overnight repairs.

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