Weekend closure of A90 southbound slip-road to Findon (1)

The A90 southbound slip road to Findon will close from around 8pm on Friday 20 April 2018 until 6am on Monday 23 April 2018, as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project.
This weekend closure, which will enable the contractor to install street lighting, is required to enhance the safety of workers who will be operating within a confined works area.

To gain access to Findon during the closure, road users should continue southbound on the A90 and exit at the Portlethen junction. They should then re-join the A90 northbound back to Findon junction from where they can continue their journey.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“The temporary closure of the A90 southbound slip road to Findon has been timed to take place over a weekend when traffic is normally quieter to help minimise the impact it may have on road users. However, road users who would normally use this route should plan their journeys in advance so that they can reach their destination safely and on time.

“We would like to ask road users to drive with more caution than usual and to observe all signage for their own safety, as well as for the safety other road users and the construction workforce.

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