North-east road to close this weekend for AWPR work

The A93 North Deeside Road is expected to close this weekend to enable the contractor for the AWPR project to undertake essential surfacing works to the west of the new Bridge.

The contractor is expected to close the road from 8pm tomorrow until 5am on Monday to the west of the new North Deeside Road Bridge.

Drivers aiming to travel west from Aberdeen should travel via the A93 Great Western Road, Springfield Road, B9119 Queen’s Road, A944 Skene Road, B9119 Tarland Road and the B979 Malcolm Road at which point they can re-join the A93 west of the closure. The reverse journey should be taken by those wishing to travel east.

Drivers travelling west on the A93 will be able to access the B979 Milltimber Brae under temporary traffic signals.

Drivers heading north on the B979 Milltimber Brae will only be able to access the A93 eastbound.

Bus routes will be amended during these works as buses will be unable to travel through the closure area.

Services will terminate at an area on either side of the road closure, where passengers should alight. Passengers on the First Bus number 19 Tillydrone-Culter service can use the footpath alongside the closure to rejoin their service. Any updates will be communicated to passengers.

Stagecoach is providing a shuttle bus between the closure and Crathes Castle gates to link in with its Aberdeen-Braemar services.

Access for cyclists, pedestrians and emergency services will be maintained throughout the road closures.

A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “This weekend’s closure is required so that the contractor can undertake essential road surfacing to the west of the new North Deeside Road Bridge. The works have been timed to take place during a weekend to minimise the impact it may have on road users.

“However, we would like to encourage all those people who would normally consider using this route, whether in a vehicle or by using a bus to plan their journey in advance. They should also give themselves additional travelling time so that they can reach their destination safely and on time.

“We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause and thank road users and the local community in advance for their patience during this period.”
