Changes to road layout on A90 at Balmedie

Traffic management on the A90 at Balmedie will be reconfigured to allow works to progress at Balmedie Junction, as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project.

This change to the road layout is expected to take place between 8pm on Friday 28 July and 6am Monday 31 July using a series of lane closures and lane openings.

After these changes are complete, the temporary diversion will be to the east of the current alignment, and two lanes of traffic will be provided in both the northbound and southbound directions. This will enable the contractor to construct and complete the second half of the Balmedie Underpass.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“The changes to road layout at Balmedie will allow the contractor to continue their works on the Balmedie Underpass, which will form a crucial part of the new Balmedie Junction.

“However, we would like to suggest to road users that they plan ahead and give themselves some additional travelling time so they can reach their destination safely and on time while these changes to the road layout are being implemented.

“Also, as with any change to road layout, we strongly encourage road users to drive with more caution than usual. We would also kindly request that drivers observe all of the signage in place to enhance the safety of road users and road workers.

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

When complete, the AWPR/B-T will help to reduce congestion, cut journey times, improve safety and lower pollution in Aberdeen City Centre. It will also enable local authorities to develop public transport solutions.
