Ongoing road safety improvement project on A90 at Tealing reaches next stage

The ongoing £345,000 road safety project for the A90 at Tealing is reaching the next stage this week with teams beginning work on safety barrier upgrades on the trunk road.

The work is the next stage of a series of road safety improvements carried out at the Tealing and Murroes Junction, which involves refurbishing a shared-use layby to the south of Murroes Junction and constructing a new bus stop, footway and upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing point within the central reservation.  The vehicle safety barrier within the central reservation will also be upgraded along with improvements to the existing street lighting at the junctions.

The project has been designed to enhance the safety of pedestrians and motorists turning at the junctions on this section of the A90 at Tealing. New vehicle activated warning signs were also installed last year.

Since the final phase began in December, teams have made good progress with work now completed on the new footpath from Murroes Junction to the shared-use layby in preparation of constructing a new bus shelter.  Once work to upgrade the safety barrier is completed later this week, teams will then carry out further footway improvements as well as safety fence and layby works with the project expected to be completed by Sunday 8 March.

To ensure the workforce and road users remain safe during this stage of the project, 24/7 single lane closures will be in place on the both the northbound and southbound carriageways until Sunday 16 February. Alternate northbound and southbound single lane closures will then be in place from Monday 17 February between 7.30pm and 6.30am until the project is complete.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “The final phase of road safety improvements on the A90 Tealing has progressed well with teams completing work to install a new footpath at Murroes Junction.

“Once the project is complete it will help improve pedestrian links to public transport, promoting active travel, as well as increasing junction visibility for road users.

“The traffic management is necessary to ensure the safety of the workforce and road users during the project, and our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams work to carry out these road safety improvements. We encourage road users to plan their journey in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for real time journey information

Road safety improvement project set to continue on A90 at Tealing

 

  • Final phase of work starts this week

 

A road safety project to upgrade pedestrian safety on the A90 at Tealing is set to continue this week.

The project is due to get underway from Wednesday 11 December and will see the final phase of safety improvements carried out at the Tealing and Murroes Junction which saw new vehicle activated warning signs completed earlier this year.   Once completed the work will enhance the safety of pedestrians and motorists turning at the junctions on this section of the A90 at Tealing. 

The final stage of the project is expected to last for eight weeks in total, with work pausing over the Festive period to avoid any disruption.  Work will involve refurbishing a shared-use layby to the south of Murroes Junction and constructing a new bus stop, footway and upgrading the existing pedestrian crossing point within the central reservation.  The vehicle safety barrier within the central reservation will also be upgraded.

Starting on Wednesday, enabling work will first be carried out to allow teams to install a power supply to the new bus shelter.  Southbound single-lane closures will be in place from 7.30pm to 6.30am for up to two weeks to allow the work to take place safely.  All traffic management will be removed over Christmas, with teams returning in the new year from Monday 6 January for six weeks to complete all remaining work.  Temporary lane closures will be in place in the new year to allow teams to complete the project. 

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This final phase of work shall complete a significant safety improvement project at Tealing, further improving road safety for pedestrians and junction users on this section of the A90.

 “Once completed the project shall improve pedestrian links to public transport, promoting active travel, as well as increasing junction visibility for road users.

 “To ensure the safety of everyone during the project, the A90 will be reduced to one lane at various times, however our teams will do all they can to complete the project quickly and safely.
