Transport chiefs are warning drivers to expect “significant delays” on a north-east road this weekend as work continues on the £745million Aberdeen bypass.
A section of the A956 Wellington Road at Charleston is expected to close from 8pm on Friday to 6am on Monday.
The closure, which will enable the contractor to undertake surfacing and verge works, requires a number of diversions to let motorists complete their journeys. Diversions will be sign-posted.
The works planned are weather dependent and will be subject to change at short notice.
Northbound traffic wishing to access the A956 should continue on the A90 to Bridge of Dee, where they will be directed to the A956 via Great Southern Road and West Tullos Road.
Drivers travelling westbound who wish to travel on the A90 northbound or southbound will be diverted from the A956 onto the Old Stonehaven Road to Findon Junction, where they will be able to join the A90 and continue northbound or southbound as required.
The section of Wellington Road between the A956 and C8K Cove Road will only be available in the southbound direction, with no access along this section for northbound traffic.
Escorted access will be available to Redmoss Road residents and local businesses.
A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “The contractor has been working closely with Police Scotland and the local authorities to time these works to take place during periods when traffic is normally quieter.
“However, the closure of the A956 Wellington Road is significant and is expected to cause delays in the area.”
