Busy Aberdeenshire road reopens… Three days ahead of schedule

A busy Aberdeenshire road used by scores of tourists has reopened ahead of schedule.

The closure of the A939 Corgarff to Lecht has been lifted three days ahead of schedule, as of 4pm yesterday.

Last week it was reported that the closure had been causing a number of problems, with motorists encountering a two hour diversion.

Although the council tried to time the work to avoid the main tourism season, some visitors have been caught out – leaving them with no choice but to follow the lengthy diversion towards Huntly, Dufftown and Tomintoul.

Work taking part on the road included resurfacing sections, and widening a tight bend.

There will still be some works taking place on site, but they will be managed with temporary traffic lights as required.

Head of roads and landscape services, Philip McKay, said: “We have worked hard to minimise the closure of this important route and are pleased to have completed the main works three days early.

“I would like to thank motorists for their patience while this closure has been ongoing, and would ask everybody to continue to take additional care on the route while the remainder of the works are completed.”
