Works start Monday 21 October for three weeks



Sections of the A90 Brechin Bypass are set to benefit from £300,000 worth of resurfacing improvements with the project set to start next week.

The resurfacing improvements will address any defects across a 6.3km section of the road, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The project is set to get underway from approximately 6.30am Monday 21 October and will take up to three weeks to complete. The £300,000 investment will involve teams carrying out surfacing improvements on both the northbound and southbound carriageway. The project is due to be completed by 6.30am Sunday 10 November.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, a contraflow system will be in place 24-hours a day throughout the duration of the project. The contraflow system will first be on the northbound carriageway before switching to the southbound carriageway until works are completed. Due to the locations of the contraflows, the slip roads at the A935 (St Anns) & B966 (Keithock) Junctions will be closed for safety when the contraflow is in place with a signed diversion route set up.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This resurfacing project for various sections on the A90 Brechin Bypass will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other issues which will improve the general condition of the road for motorists.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the project under a contraflow traffic management system which will keep the traffic constantly moving.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.  We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information and leave extra time to reach their destination.”
