AWPR - temporary road closure for Muchalls to Burnhead Road

The contractor for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project is expecting to close the C25K Muchalls to Burnhead Road, between North Cookney and Floors Farm, for around two weeks from 6am Tuesday 20 March.

This closure will  enable the contractor to undertake various works, including verge works and the removal of temporary barriers, whilst maintaining the safety of road workers and road users.

Diversions will be sign-posted. Road users intending to travel north of the closure should travel via the C25K to Muchalls, where they should join the A90 northbound until they reach Newtonhill. They should then join the C24K Skateraw to Cookney Road to North Cookney. The reverse journey is required for those intending to travel south of the closure.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“We would like to encourage those drivers who would consider using this route to plan their journey in advance and allow themselves additional travelling time so that they can reach their destination safely and on time.

"We thank road users and the local community in advance for their patience during this period."
