A96 Crooks Mill, Keith


  • Work starts Monday 29 June for five nights
  • Strict physical distancing protocols in place to protect teams


Essential work to address a section of the A96 carriageway at Crooks Mill Junction near Keith is set to take place from Monday 29 June for five nights.

The resurfacing improvements will address any existing defects in the road, ensuring the integrity and safety of the trunk road network at this location.

The essential overnight project is scheduled to start on Monday 29 June and will take place over five nights between 7.30pm and 6.30am, with work expected to be completed by 6.30am on Saturday 4 July.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.

Strict physical distancing protocols, in line with Scottish Government guidance, will be in place to ensure all site personnel remain safe once the project gets underway.  New safe operation procedures and risk assessments have also been developed to ensure teams are kept safe throughout the project. 

Consultation has taken place with local residents and stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This project will help ensure the A96 at Keith remains a safe and reliable route for years to come. 

“We’ve changed our ways of working in response to the Covid-19 pandemic to ensure all staff and the local community are kept safe at all times, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Scottish Guidance.  Thorough risk assessments have been developed and cleansing stations have been implemented on site to ensure all staff remain safe.

“The traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of roadworkers and motorists, however we have arranged for it to be removed outwith working hours to help minimise disruption to road users.


“As always, we’ll do all we can to ensure that this project is completed as quickly and as safely as possible.”
