Work to repair the road surface at two busy roundabouts will not take place until the next financial year.
While Bear Scotland has said it will undertake work at the two Ellon junctions on the A90, local councillor Gillian Owen said she is disappointed it is not happening sooner.
She has been campaigning for years for road improvements on the A90 north of Aberdeen and recently Bear Scotland undertook £350,000 of resurfacing improvements between the two roundabouts.
Ms Owen said the roundabouts are in a dreadful state and she is disappointed work has not been carried out on them.
Bear Scotland has confirmed to the Evening Express work will take place next year.
A spokesman said: “The £350,000 improvement project for a section of the A90 Ellon bypass was completed as planned this past weekend, with over 700 metres of the A90 resurfaced.
“Our teams are now turning towards the next phase of carriageway surfacing near Ellon for October 26, which will see the remaining stretch of the A90 resurfaced up to Ellon North Roundabout.
“Plans are also in place to resurface both the north and south roundabouts on the A90 Ellon Bypass next financial year and our teams will continue to monitor the locations for any further deterioration in the meantime.”

Mrs Owen said: “It is disappointing they are not doing the roundabouts until next financial year.
“I’m worried because if there is a bad winter, the road will be in an even worse state and there could be potholes. The roundabout is in a dreadful state and so is the A90 dual carriageway both ways to the new road and it is in need of urgent attention.
“I think the problem is that, locally, everyone is complaining about the road surface at the roundabouts.
“Naturally, residents thought at last these issues were going to be addressed and they weren’t.”
