AWPR - Overnight closures for new A90 Stonehaven southbound slip road
The new southbound slip road which carries traffic onto the A90 from the B979 Netherley Road will close overnight for around two weeks from Saturday 19 May as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project.
It is anticipated that the slip road will close from around 8pm each night and re-open by 6am the following morning to enable works on verges and street lighting to be undertaken.
Diversions will be sign-posted. Road users wishing to access the A90 southbound at Stonehaven should travel via the B979 David Street, Allardice Street and then the A957 Bridgefield, Dunnottar Avenue up to Glasslaw Junction onto A92 Stonehaven to Dunfermline Road, which is known locally as the Coast Road, before joining the southbound A90.
Access to and from the northbound A90 from Stonehaven and the B979 Netherley Road is unaffected.
A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:
“The new slip road onto the A90 at Stonehaven is one of the sections built as part of the project which was opened in advance of the new trunk road and has significantly reduced the level of traffic going through the town, particularly at busy times. The contractor has therefore arranged these closures to take place overnight to ensure traffic diverted through Stonehaven is kept to a minimum.
“While these works are underway, we kindly request drivers to observe all of the signage and speed limits that are in place to enhance the safety of pedestrians, road users and road workers.”
