Upcoming roadworks in Aberdeenshire

A number of roads across the Banff and Buchan area will be closed for maintenance work in the coming weeks.

The High Shore road in Banff will be partly closed for five months to allow renovation work to be carried out on the former granary building.

The closure will take effect from Monday, July 23, and will apply between Water Path and High Shore. Diversions will be in place via Church Street and Carmelite Street.

The town’s Stuart Street and Kingswell Lane will also be closed from Monday, July 30, for two weeks. The closure will stretch from Seafield Street to Boyndie Street.

Diversions will be in place via Grant Street.

In addition, Church Street in Portsoy will be closed from Thursday, July 26 for five days from Bridge Street to Low Street, for gas installation works.

Alternative routes will be available via Institution Street, School Hendry Street and Shore Street.

Aberdeenshire Council apologises for any inconvenience these closures may cause while work is being completed and advises motorists to check the website for regular updates on all road closures in the area as the best source of live information: www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/roads/traffic/closures.asp.
