Motorists on a busy north-east road will face disruption next week as a result of essential maintenance works.
Drainage improvements are scheduled to take place overnight for four nights on the A90 Aberdeen to Fraserburgh road at the Ellon Bypass – to alleviate any localised issues during periods of heavy rain.
The section of road is used by around 12,600 vehicles on a daily basis and it’s anticipated the works will help improve safety for road users.
They will begin on Monday, February 13 for four nights, taking place every night from 7.30pm until 6.30am. Temporary traffic lights will be in place to ensure the safety of the work force and road users.
Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s north east representative, said: “These works will address drainage issues on this section of the road which will help improve the general condition and safety of the route for road users.
“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption by scheduling the drainage improvements overnight and avoiding working during the busier Friday or Saturday nights.
“However, we encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
