Slip road to close as Aberdeen bypass work progresses

Though the opening date hasn’t been announced, it is expected to be any time soon.
Though the opening date hasn’t been announced, it is expected to be any time soon.

A slip road on a main north-east route will close this Sunday night for five days for work to continue on the Aberdeen bypass.

The A90 southbound exit to Newburgh is expected to close for surfacing works from 8pm on Sunday until 8pm on Friday.

Work will affect the A90 diverge slip road, from the southbound A90 main carriageway at Tipperty to the B9000 east.

Access to the realigned Tarty Road from the B9000 will also close.

Diversions will be signposted. The works are weather dependent and may be subject to change at short notice.

A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “The temporary closure of the A90 southbound diverge slip road at Tipperty is necessary to enable the contractor to complete surfacing works in this area. Road users who would normally use this route should plan their journeys in advance so that they can reach their destination safely and on time.

“We would like to ask road users to drive with more caution than usual and to observe all signage for their own safety, as well as for the safety other road users and the construction workforce.

“We would also like to thank road users and the local community for their on-going support and patience during the construction works.”

The £750million AWPR is expected to open by Autumn.
