Upcoming closure of A90 northbound merge at Stonehaven

The A90 northbound merge slip road at Stonehaven will close from 8 PM on Tuesday August 7, until 6 AM on Wednesday August 8, 2018 as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project.

This closure will enable the contractor to undertake finishing works on the slip road, including lining works.

All diversions will be sign-posted. Road users intending to head north from Stonehaven or from the B979 Netherley Road should travel through Stonehaven to Glasslaw Junction where they can join the A90 northbound carriageway.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“This is a well-used commuter route therefore the contractor has timed this closure to minimise the impact it may have on road users.

“However, we would like to encourage those drivers who would consider using this route overnight to plan their journey 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 patience during this period."
