A section of the A90 south of Gash, near Fraserburgh, is set to benefit from £90,000 resurfacing improvements starting on Sunday.

The investment from Transport Scotland will improve the road surface, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The resurfacing improvements will begin on Sunday, October 16 at 7.30pm and are programmed to take place over two nights, finishing at 6.30am on Tuesday, October 18.

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

Consultation has taken place with local residents in advance of the resurfacing 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 essential resurfacing improvements will address any defects in the road surface, enhancing road safety in this area.

"We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists by scheduling the work to take place overnight, and planning the resurfacing to be completed in two nights to limit any impact.

“We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for real time journey information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting www.trafficscotland.org or twitter @ trafficscotland.

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