A90 Glasslaw, southbound


Works start Sunday 10 November for one week


A section of the A90 southbound carriageway at Glasslaw is set to benefit from essential maintenance improvements starting on Sunday night.

The southbound section of the A90 is used by around 12,000 vehicles every day and essential maintenance works are now required on the crossovers between Glasslaw on-slip and the Lumgair Junction.

The project is set to get underway from 7.30pm Sunday 10 November and is programmed to take place over one week, with all work expected to be completed by 6.30am on Friday 15 November.

During the crossover improvements, there will be a single lane closure on the northbound carriageway in place 24-hours a day with a 50mph speed limit in place to protect road workers and motorists. For safety, the southbound right turn lanes to local properties will be closed between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night. A signed diversion route will be in place to guide residents and motorists to their destination safely. The crossovers will be re-opened outwith working hours.  

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 traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of road workers and motorists. We’ve programmed the crossover closures to take place overnight to help minimise disruption to road users.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while we complete these works and encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

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