Motorists have been warned to expect delays on a stretch of the A90 outside St Fergus.

BEAR Scotland has announced £115,000 worth of resurfacing works on the carriageway between the village and the St Fergus Gas Terminal.

The repairs will begin on Monday, March 10, and continue for eight days.

Resurfacing will not be carried out over the weekend.

Drivers should expect restrictions to be in place between 8am and 5pm each day.

BEAR Scotland’s North East unit representative Andy Thompson said: “These works will repair a failing section of the A90 trunk road which will improve the general condition of the road and help maintain this vital link to the St Fergus gas terminal.

“We will do as much as possible to minimise delays.”

Mr Thompson urged drivers to allow extra time when planning their journeys.

A convoy system will be put in place to ensure the safety of the workmen and a 10mph speed limit will be set due to the width of the road.

BEAR Scotland, which looks after trunk roads in the North East, South East and North West of Scotland, has stressed that, whenever possible, restrictions will be removed at night.

The works will however be weather dependant.

Severe weather or low temperatures could mean delays stretch past the eight day timetable.

The roadworks will affect drivers travelling between Peterhead and Fraserburgh.

Motorists coming south from Fraserburgh may choose to take the A952 road to Mintlaw instead.

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