Drivers in Aberdeen are to face more traffic disruption, with work on a busy city roundabout to be extended.
Gas distribution firm SGN is carrying out emergency repairs at the north end of the King George VI Bridge, at the junction between Great Southern Road and Riverside Drive.
Having begun on April 27, the work was due to be completed on April 31, but SGN has now admitted the road will not be fully reopened until Monday – two weeks later than originally planned.
A spokesman for the gas firm said the work has turned out to be “more complex” than originally thought, due to the “specialist engineering work required”.
A spokesman for SGN said: “We’re continuing emergency repairs to our gas main at the King George VI Bridge in Aberdeen.
“Our work is taking place in the roundabout at the north end of the bridge, at its junction with Riverside Drive.
“Our remaining work is more complex than originally planned and we require specialist equipment to complete it.”
He added: “The east section of Riverside Drive will also be temporarily closed as will Great Southern Road southbound, between Murray Terrace and Riverside Drive.
“The west section of Riverside Drive will only be open for eastbound motorists.
“All going well, we now hope to complete our repairs, restore the road surface and fully reopen the bridge by Monday.”
Bus services have also been affected by the work, with First Aberdeen’s 17, 17A, 18 and 18A services re-routed to avoid the area.
