Motorists who use the A90 are being advised that £198,000 improvement works are set to take place on the southbound carriageway from the Marykirk/Thornton junction this week.

The investment by Transport Scotland will see a 2.4 km stretch of the carriageway undergo repairs to the surface of both southbound lanes, as well as the road markings being refreshed.

Work starts on Sunday (March 2) for seven nights, excluding Friday and Saturday nights, and traffic management will be in place each night between 7.30 p.m. and 06.30 a.m.

A convoy system with a 10mph speed limit will be in place to help keep workers and motorists safe during this time.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit representative, said: “These works will repair a number of potholes and will improve the general condition of the road for motorists.

“The works are being carried out overnight to minimise delays. We would, however, encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time for travel.”

The works are being carried out by Breedon Aggregates and Euromark on behalf of BEAR Scotland.

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.
