Amey is undertaking a £390,000 project delivering road surfacing improvements to a section of the A96 near Kinellar in Aberdeenshire.

Resurfacing will be carried out to 1600 metres of the westbound carriageway from the Kinellar Roundabout to north of Marshall’s Farm Shop between Saturday 25th and Friday 31st March.

The improvements will benefit more than 10,500 vehicles who use this route each day, creating a smoother ride for motorists and reducing the need for ongoing maintenance.

The essential maintenance, which Amey is undertaking on behalf of Transport Scotland, will be completed under overnight convoy between 7.30pm-6.30am each night.

In addition to overnight convoy working, there will also be daytime lane closures on Sunday 26th March to facilitate the cooling of deeper sections of treatment.

Traffic management will be removed by 6.30am on Friday 31st March.

Consultation has taken place with relevant stakeholders in advance of the surfacing improvements to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements.

Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
