AWPR - weekend convoys for A947 Goval
Temporary traffic signals and convoy working are expected to be in place on a short section of the A947 at Goval during quieter periods this weekend (Friday 8 December to Monday 11 December), as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project.
These temporary measures will be in operation to enhance the safety of road users and road workers while the contractor completes surfacing works which will connect the new A947 with the existing A947. Additional signage will be in place to advise road users when the convoy restriction is in operation. Works on site will cease and the convoy will be removed as traffic increases.
These works are planned to take place from around 8pm on Friday 8 December until 6am on Monday 11 December and will be dependent on suitable weather conditions.
A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:
“The temporary traffic signals and convoy working are required to enhance the safety of road workers, who will be working in close proximity to traffic.
“This requires road users to stop at temporary traffic signals. During quieter periods, the contractor will escort road users through the works at 10mph as part of a convoy for safety reasons, using an official site vehicle.
“The contractor has timed these works to minimise the impact they may have on road users. However, we would like to encourage those drivers who would normally consider using the A947 at Goval to allow themselves additional travelling time so they can reach their destinations safely and on time.”
"We thank road users in advance for their patience during this period."
