A90 Muiryfaulds to Gateside, northbound


Works start Monday 23 March over one week


Essential drainage investigations are to be carried out on a section of the A90 northbound carriageway north of Dundee starting next week.

The investigations will involve teams carrying out cleaning and CCTV surveying of the drainage network on the A90 between Muiryfaulds and Gateside Underpass, as well as carrying out tests of the filter drain ahead of future maintenance work.

The project is scheduled to start on Monday 23 March and will take approximately five days to complete using 24-hour working, with investigations due to be completed by 6.30am Saturday 28 March.

To ensure the safety of the workforce as well as motorists, a 24-hour single lane closure with a 50mph speed restriction will in place on the northbound carriageway throughout the project. 

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

Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the drainage investigation 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 drainage investigations on the A90 are part of our general routine maintenance programme and are essential in ensuring the drainage network is kept in a good functional condition.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the work under a single lane closure which will keep traffic constantly moving.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential drainage investigations on the A90. We encourage 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.”
