AWPR - weekend closures of A90 slip-roads at Findon

The Findon northbound merge slip road onto the A90 main carriageway is planned to close from around 8pm on Friday 9 March 2018 until 6am on Monday 12 March 2018, as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project.

This is expected to be followed by a closure of the A90 southbound slip road to Findon in the coming weeks. The dates for this closure will be confirmed via the project’s traffic management web page and @transcotland.

These weekend closures, which will enable the contractor to install street lighting and permanent signage, are required to enhance the safety of workers who will be operating within a confined works area.

The above works are all weather dependent and may be subject to change at short notice.

Diversions will be sign-posted. To gain access to the A90 northbound carriageway from Findon , road users should travel southbound on the A90 until they reach Portlethen Junction. They should then turn around and re-join the A90 travelling northbound.

When the A90 southbound slip road to Findon closure is in place, road users wishing to access Findon should continue southbound on the A90 and exit at Portlethen Junction. They should then re-join the A90 northbound back to Findon Junction from where they can continue their journey.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“These temporary closures of the slip roads at Findon Junction have been timed to take place during weekends when traffic is normally quieter. This should help minimise the impact they may have on road users. However, road users who would normally use this route should plan their journeys in advance so that they can reach their destination safely and on time.

“We would like to ask road users to drive with more caution than usual and to observe all signage for their own safety, as well as for the safety other road users and the construction workforce.

 “We would also like to thank road users and the local community for their on-going support and patience during the construction works.”
