A convoy is expected to be in place from around 10pm on Thursday, April 26 until 6am the following morning. This will require road users to stop at temporary traffic signals during quieter periods. The contractor will escort road users through the works at 10mph as part of a convoy for safety reasons, using an official site vehicle.

A contraflow is then expected to be in place at on the A90 at Tipperty from around 8pm on Friday, April 27 until 6am on Monday (April 30).

While the contraflow is in place, road users will be unable to turn right into or out of Bridgend. Diversions will be sign-posted. Road users wishing to leave Bridgend to travel south should turn left onto the A90 and travel to Ellon Roundabout where they can turn and rejoin the A90 on the southbound carriageway.

Road users travelling on the southbound A90 wishing to turn into Bridgend will have to continue south until they reach Murcar Roundabout where they can turn and rejoin the A90 on the northbound carriageway, which will allow them to turn left into Bridgend.

These works are weather dependent and are subject to change.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said: “These traffic management measures on the A90 at Tipperty will enable the contractor to undertake necessary surfacing works.

“This change to road layout will bring drivers into close proximity with road workers, so we would also like to encourage road users to apply more caution than usual when driving through or nearby this section of the A90. Road users should also observe all road signage to enhance their safety, as well as the safety of others.

“We would like to thank road users for their continued patience and support during the construction of this major infrastructure project.”
