[[success]] Email address Sign up Extensive roadworks to repair important bridges on the A957 Stonehaven to Crathes Slug Road have been completed four weeks ahead of schedule. Closures have been in place since the start of July to allow engineers to work on the bridges at Blairydrine, Cowton, Mowrie and Findlayston. The works were due to last until August 24 but yesterday afternoon Aberdeenshire Council confirmed the bridges have now all been fixed, and the road has reopened. Motorists have been forced to contend with a lengthy diversion along the Aberdeen Bypass over the past few weeks. The repair work was carried out during the summer so that traditional techniques and materials could be used on the historic crossings. Already a subscriber?
