The current 50mph speed restriction in place on a stretch of the A90 looks set to be extended this month.

Drivers are asked to be aware that the 50mph speed limit will be extended to cover a wider area between the Murcar roundabout and the Ellon roundabout at Tipperty in August.

This extension will enable AWPR road workers to progress construction safely.

An AWPR/B-T spokesperson said: “The change to the speed limit is necessary to ensure workers can construct the new road safely while road users continue to use the A90.

“We strongly advise road users to plan their routes before they set off on their journey.

“As with any changes of this kind, we recommend that all drivers using these routes apply more caution than usual to familiarise themselves with the new layout.”

Average speed cameras are currently in operation on the A90 stretch of road between Blackdog and Balmedie to enhance safety for both construction workers and road users whilst the construction work is underway.
