A section of the southbound A90 to the north of Forfar at Bogindollo is set to benefit from £140,000 resurfacing improvements starting later this month.

This section of the A90 is used by around 21,000 vehicles every day and the surface now requires upgrading. The investment will allow any cracks or potholes to be repaired, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The resurfacing will begin on Sunday, July 10, over three nights, taking place from 7.30pm to 6.30am each night, with the improvements scheduled to be completed by 6.30am on Wednesday, July 13.

For the safety of roadworkers as well as motorists, a 10mph convoy system of traffic management will be in place during the works to ensure the safety of the work force and the travelling public, however this will be lifted outside of working hours.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “These works will repair any surfacing defects, improving this section of road for the safety of motorists.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption as much as possible by scheduling the scheme to take place overnight and avoiding working on the busier Friday or Saturday evenings, however we encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

Real-time journey planning information can be obtained by visiting www.trafficscotland.org or twitter @trafficscotland.

Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.
