Motorists have been warned of road closures ahead of the opening of a new bridge on North Deeside Road next month.
The structure will be the latest piece of the AWPR when it opens in July.
From 8pm on Friday until 6am on Monday, the B979 at Milltimber Brae will be closed for utility works. The A93 will be open as normal.
Due to overhead clearance, HGVs are not permitted to use the Bridge of Dee and those travelling south should instead follow the signed alternative route via Holburn Street, Riverside Drive and Great Southern Road. The reverse journey is necessary for those travelling north.
From 8pm on Friday, July 7 until 6am on Monday, July 10 and from 8pm on Friday, July 14 until 6am on Monday, July 17 the A93 at Milltimber Brae will be closed to connect the new North Deeside Road Bridge with the existing A93.
Diversions will be sign-posted while access for local residents, businesses, cyclists, pedestrians and emergency services will be maintained throughout the road closures. Users of the Deeside Way will also be unaffected.
A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “As announced last year, various side roads and structures along the AWPR/B-T route are opening in advance of the new trunk road and those who use the A93 will be amongst the first to benefit from the project.
“The contractor is aiming to open the new bridge on North Deeside Road as soon as possible after these significant works are complete. He is targeting late July, but achieving this will be largely dependent on weather conditions.
“Once the new bridge opens, we would like to encourage road users to exercise more caution than usual in this area until they become accustomed to the changes in road layout.”
