McInnes welcomes improvements to A90 trunk road

Transport Scotland is planning a series of improvements to the A90 Fraserburgh to Dundee trunk road.

North East MSP Alison McInnes welcomed the news saying: “The A90 is a key artery for the North East. The past winter has caused a lot of problems, and this has contributed to the backlog.

“Resurfacing work costing £1.1 million has recently been completed between the Charleston flyover and Bridge of Dee in Aberdeen, but much more needs to be done.”

Mrs McInnes was told that resurfacing is now planned for Charleston to Damhead, North Water Bridge to Hatton , at Glasslaw, and at Stonehaven.

Patching is to take place at Laurencekirk, Fordoun junction, Glendoick, and Happas; Fordoun bypass, Starr Farm, Powrie Brae, Drumnagair, and at Oatyhill; and finally in Aberdeen, Keithock to North Water Bridge, and at Foveran.

Drainage improvements are scheduled between Ellon and Fraserburgh and at Drumlithie.

Also currently in progress is the introduction of double parking restrictions in Fraserburgh,repair to the damaged footway and barrier at Lonmay after an accident, new footway at Crimond, and local widening schemes to improve safety at Boddam.
