The next phase in the delivery of the project, the construction of two junctions, is progressing. These junctions will, upon project completion, connect the new carriageway to the existing A92 and A96 enabling road users to bypass the Haudagain Roundabout.
As much of this work will continue to be carried out near to, or on the road itself, traffic restrictions will continue during this time on the A92 and A96 in the vicinity of the Haudagain Roundabout for the safety of both road users and road workers.
These restrictions will include contraflows, lane closures and speed restrictions with construction work being carried out in a number of stages. We would advise road users to plan ahead, allow extra time for your journey and approach the traffic management layouts with care. An update is provided below:
A92 North Anderson Drive
