The works will involve constructing a new roundabout to connect Craibstone Junction and the Airport Link Road, completing a gas main diversion, building a traffic lights controlled junction and installing a temporary bridge over the A96 in advance of the permanent bridge.

Traffic management will include temporary traffic lights, lane restrictions, temporary speed restrictions and contraflows and will last for around 13 months.

An AWPR/B-T project spokesperson said:

"From July 2015, there will be intermittent traffic management on the A96 to ensure the new Craibstone and Dyce Junctions will open on schedule by autumn 2016.

“The contractor is aiming to reduce the impact on road users and local communities whenever possible. Therefore the majority of the traffic management will be in place on weekday nights and also weekend days and nights. Where night time working is required, this will be agreed in advance with the local authority.

"As with any traffic management works, we advise motorists to plan their journeys in advance and would like to thank them in advance for their patience during this period.”

Further details on this upcoming period of traffic management will be distributed to the local community over the coming days and can also be found here
