SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A90 Kirriemuir Junction to Todhills, southbound

 

Works start Monday 11 November over two weeks

 

A section of the A90 north of Dundee is set to benefit from resurfacing improvements with the project due to start next week.

The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the southbound section of the A90 between Kirriemuir A928 and the Todhills/Tinkletap Junctions, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.

To ensure the project can take place safely and takes place with minimum disruption to motorists, the project has been split into two phases starting on Monday 11 November.

  • Phase One – 7.30pm Monday 11 November to Thursday 14 November (three days)

The first phase of the project is set to get underway from 7.30pm on Monday 11 November and will take three days to complete. Teams will work continuously with the majority of improvements expected to be completed by Thursday afternoon. To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, a contraflow system will be in place between the Nether Finlarg and the Todhills/Tinkletap Junctions with single lane traffic in each direction travelling on the northbound carriageway, allowing teams safe access to complete the surfacing on the southbound section. Lane closures on both the northbound and southbound carriageways will be in place during the daytime on Monday to allow teams to prepare the area ahead of the contraflow being installed.  

  • Phase Two – Thursday 14 November to Tuesday 19 November, 7.30pm-6.30am (three nights)

Phase two of the project is set to get underway from Thursday 14 November and will take place over three nights between 7.30pm and 6.30am, with all work expected to be completed by 6.30am on Tuesday 19 November. For safety, lane closures and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the improvements. To minimise disruption for motorists, no works are programmed for Saturday or Sunday nights. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.

 

Local access to properties within the scheme extents will be maintained throughout the duration of the works via signed diversion routes.  

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

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “These surfacing improvements will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A90, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

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

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A90. We 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 via the new mobile site my.trafficscotland.org.

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods. All waster materials and spoil resulting from these road works will be re-cycled in accordance with Scottish Environment Project Agency (SEPA) policies and procedures.
