A90 Nether Careston, Southbound 


Works start Tuesday 21 January for four nights



A section of the A90 southbound carriageway at Nether Careston Farm is set to benefit from improvements worth £140,000 starting next week.

The project will involve surfacing improvements on the southbound carriageway between Brechin and Finavon, helping to create a smoother and safer road surface for motorists. 

The overnight improvements are scheduled to start on Tuesday 21 January and will take place over four nights between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night, with all works expected to be completed by 6.30am on Monday 27 January. No works are programmed for Friday or Saturday nights.

To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, a single lane closure and a 10mph convoy system will be in place. Due to the nature of the works a daytime lane closure with a 50mph speed limit will be in place throughout the duration of the project.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This £140,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve this section of the A90 by removing any existing surface defects, creating 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 overnight and avoiding working on Friday and Saturday nights. The surfacing project is subject to weather conditions, and efforts will be made to keep the public informed of any delays to the programme.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential works on the A90. We encourage road users to plan ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
