Eight weeks of ground investigations are to get under way on Monday 20 May at the A90/A937 Laurencekirk Junction.

The work is to help inform the ongoing design work for the planned improvements at this busy junction.

Some traffic management measures will be required when necessary to allow work on or near the carriageway to be carried out safely. This will include alternate single file traffic sections on the adjoining A937 side road controlled by temporary traffic signals or at times stop/go boards as required.

The contractor will monitor traffic and take steps where necessary to adjust or remove traffic management to ensure delays are kept to a minimum.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“We are continuing to progress the design work for the much-needed Laurencekirk Junction Improvement scheme, having let the public see and comment on the preferred option for the scheme last summer.

“We are now taking forward the detailed design of the preferred option with a view to publishing draft orders later this year, and these ground investigations will provide the detailed information needed to progress that work.

“We apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause and would thank road users and local communities in advance for their patience during the works. The contractor will closely monitor the operation of the traffic management measures to ensure that delays are kept to a minimum.

“We would ask drivers to plan their journeys in advance using the Traffic Scotland website, twitter feed or Traffic Scotland radio.”
