AWPR - Wester Ord to Blacktop Road to close temporarily

The C127C Wester Ord to Blacktop Road is expected to close west of Baillieswells Road between 7am and 6pm each day between Monday 12 March and Friday 16 March to enable the contractor for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project to undertake finishing and drainage works.

Access for residents will be provided during the daytime closure periods. From Monday 19 March, temporary traffic signals are expected to be in place for one week.

Due to the location of this closure and its interface with the public road network, there will be a number of diversionary routes in place depending on the road user’s intended direction of travel. All diversions will be sign-posted.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“It is necessary to close this section of the C127C Wester Ord to Blacktop Road during each day next week to enable the contractor to safely carry out finishing and drainage works. 

“We would like to encourage those drivers who would consider using this route to plan their journeys in advance. They should also give 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 continued patience during this period."
