AWPR – Weekend closure for A90 Charleston slip road
The contractor for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project will close the A90 to A956 northbound diverge slip road at Charleston from around 10.30am on Friday 27 July until 6.00am on Monday 30 July 2018 for finishing works.
Diversions will be sign-posted. Road users who would normally use the A90 northbound diverge to join the A956 Wellington Road should continue on the A90 north to Bridge of Dee, where they can turn and re-join the A90 southbound before leaving to join the A956 Wellington Road.
A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:
“The closure of the A90 to A956 northbound diverge slip road at Charleston will be in place during the busy evening period on Friday 27 July and will be removed before the busy morning period on Monday 30 July.
“These works are taking place during the school summer holiday period and while we are expecting the level of traffic travelling northbound to be quieter than usual, we suggest that drivers plan their journey in advance and leave earlier to ensure they can reach their destination safely and on time. We would also like to remind all road users to observe all signage and drive with caution.
“The contractor has been working closely with Police Scotland and the local authority to ensure that road users have an alternative route available to them whilst this slip road is closed, while maintaining the safety of road users and road workers.
“We would like to thank road users and the local community for their on-going support and patience during the construction works.”
All works are dependent on suitable weather conditions and are subject to change at short notice.
