A section of the A90 at the Toll of Birness is set to benefit from resurfacing works.

The resurfacing works will begin tonight (Monday, May 9) and is programmed to take place over eight nights.

Resurfacing will take place from 7.30pm to 6.30am the following morning, avoiding working on Saturday and Sunday nights.

A convoy system will be in place during the works to ensure the safety of the work force and the travelling public.

Temporary traffic lights shall also be used during the middle stages of the works at the A952 junction.

Traffic management will be removed outside of working hours to keep disruption to a minimum.

Consultation has taken place with local residents in advance of the resurfacing works to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “These works will repair a number of cracks, potholes and other issues which will improve the general condition and safety of the road for motorists.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption by scheduling the works to take place overnight and avoid working on the busier Saturday and Sunday nights, however we encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
