Road closures will be in effect next week as a BEAR Scotland safety scheme enters its second phase.
Work on a £350,000 project to improve safety at the embankment next to the A90 at Bridge of Muchalls began last month.
Work has been undertaken to stabilise the embankment , improve street lighting, safety fencing and footways in the area, with temporary lane closures in place during off-peak hours in the daytime.
The second phase of the project is scheduled to begin on December 3 for two weeks.
A single-lane closure will be in place continuously for five days from Monday December 3, at 9.30am, until Friday December 7 at 3.30pm.
The remainder of the project will then continue under off-peak lane closures as until it is complete.
Temporary footway diversions will also be in place for pedestrian safety during the works.
Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said:
“This £350,000 embankment stabilisation project will help ensure the road continues to function safely for years to come.
“We’ve scheduled the majority of this project to take place during off-peak daytime hours to limit the impact to road users, however the traffic management required in this next phase is essential to ensure everyone is kept safe during the improvements.
“Our teams will do all they can to can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible, however we encourage road users to plan their journey in advance and allow some extra time to complete their journey.”
