AWPR/B-T Construction Works

All traffic management is planned and coordinated through a Traffic Management Review Panel, chaired by the contractor and attended by Transport Scotland representatives, Traffic Scotland, both local Councils, and Police Scotland.

In addition, Transport Scotland, Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council have been working closely with Aberdeen Roads Limited (ARL) to ensure the safety of road users and the workforce during traffic management, whilst keeping disruption to a minimum.

As the project develops, updates on major temporary traffic management, which will allow the project to be constructed, will be provided.

Access to local businesses across the north east will be maintained at all times.

Major Works at Charleston Junction - Significant changes to road layout

These works will include the construction of a new bridge to carry road users over the existing A90 and existing Charleston Junction slip roads, the realignment of the A956 and widening the A90 to three lanes in each direction.

Due to the proximity of these works to live traffic on the A90, major traffic management is required to enhance the safety of construction workers and road users. These measures will include closing the access from Lochton to Auchlunies to Nigg Road (C5K Banchory – Devenick Road) to the A90; opening a new signed diversion for road users;  and the implementation of a 50mph speed restriction on the A90 at Charleston.

Access closure / Diversion

From early November, access to the A90 from Lochton to Auchlunies to Nigg Road (C5K Banchory – Devenick Road) will be permanently closed in line with the previously published project details. Signed diversions will be in place to help road users join and leave the A90.

Speed restriction / Designated lanes

From early November, a 50mph speed restriction will be in place on the A90 at Charleston 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Road users will be advised via signage to ‘Get In Lane, Stay In Lane’. Road users heading northbound  can remain on the A90 by using the outside lane while road users on the inside lane can choose to stay on the A90 or to join the A956 (Wellington Road). Work is also ongoing with a view to installing average speed cameras on the A90 through this section to enhance safety for construction workers and road users. Further details on this will be available shortly.

Upcoming beam deliveries

The AWPR/B-T project will have 75 principal structures, including two river crossings and one railway bridge, as well as over 70 culverts.

Beams are required for the construction of the structures and are delivered in various lengths to assist the works underway, ranging between 8m and 45m. All beams deliveries are carefully planned by the contractor, local authorities, Police Scotland and Transport Scotland. For safety reasons, and to minimise disruption to road users, beams are transported during daylight hours out with peak travelling times.

The dates provided in the ‘Upcoming beam deliveries’ section are for guidance only and are subject to change as construction progresses

A956 Charleston Junction Overbridge

On Sunday 26 March, between 9.30am and 3.30pm, two 47m long beams are expected to be delivered to the south section, which will help to form the Charleston Junction Overbridge.

Pitmedden Road Underbridge

On Monday 27 March, two 19m long edge beams are expected to be delivered to the centre section between 9.30am and 3.30pm, which will form part of the Pitmedden Road Underbridge. This will be followed by the delivery of nine 19m long beams on Thursday 30 March and Friday 31 March, between 8pm and 6am. The delivery of these beams have been timed to minimise inconvenience to road users.

Additional safety measures for the A90

Average speed cameras are now operational between Blackdog and Balmedie and at Charleston. It is expected that these will enhance safety of construction workers and road users, as well as improve safety, traffic flow and journey time reliability. 

Aberdeen Roads Limited has been working closely with Transport Scotland, Aberdeenshire Council, Police Scotland and the North Safety Camera Unit over the use of average speed cameras.
