AWPR Contraflow on A90 at Findon
Diversion routes will be sign-posted. Road users heading northbound on the A90 can either exit at Findon and follow the C5K to Charleston or continue their journey on the A90 using the contraflow, which will re-direct traffic onto the southbound carriageway. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on the southbound carriageway during these works. Northbound traffic wishing to access the A956 Wellington Road should exit at Findon.
Road users travelling north who would normally join the A90 at Findon should follow the C5K to Charleston where they will have access via the Charleston on-slip.
A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:
“We apologise for any inconvenience these necessary overnight works may have caused. However, due to the nature of this site, some night working is unfortunately unavoidable.
“It is inevitable that some noise will be generated from the construction activities but the contractor has assured us that it will keep noise levels below agreed thresholds and also has reaffirmed to us that the 24-hour project enquiries line on 0800 058 8350 is available. A Transport Scotland representative will also be on site to monitor the construction works being undertaken.
“It is necessary for these pavement works to be undertaken and the traffic management measures in place will enable the contractor to do this, while enhancing the safety of road workers and road users.
“We would like to encourage road users who need to travel through or nearby this area over this weekend to plan their journeys in advance so they can reach their destination safely and on time. However, as with all changes to road layout, we advise road users to drive more cautiously than usual.”
When complete, the AWPR/B-T will help to reduce congestion, cut journey times, improve safety and lower pollution in Aberdeen City Centre. It will also enable local authorities to develop public transport solutions.
Over the next three decades, the AWPR/B-T is expected to bring in an additional £6 billion to the north-east economy and create around 14,000 new jobs. Around 1,500 people are currently working on the project, including on-the-job training for apprentices and local employment opportunities for long-term unemployed people.
