A92 Newtonhill to Marywell

 

 

Work starts Monday 16 March for approximately five weeks

 

A new road safety project on the A92 between Newtonhill and Portlethen worth £285,000 is underway.

The project will involve improvements to the safety barriers in the central reserve between Newtonhill and Portlethen, creating a safer route for motorists.

The improvements began on Monday 16 March and are programmed to take up to five weeks to complete. 

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, a series of northbound and southbound single lane closures will be in place throughout the duration of the project.

To help minimise disruption, the lane closures will be phased to reduce the overall length of carriageway required to be closed.

Consultation has taken place with local stakeholders in advance of the project to inform them of the nature of the improvements and the traffic management arrangements to minimise any inconvenience.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “Safety is a top priority for both BEAR Scotland and Transport Scotland and the delivery of this scheme on the A92 is part of our commitment to ensuring the network remains to the highest of standards.

“The traffic management is essential to keep everyone safe during this project as teams will be working in the central reserve, however our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and as safely as possible.

“We thank motorists for their patience and encourage them to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
