A four-mile stretch of the Aberdeen bypass is due to open tomorrow.
The road between the Parkhill and Blackdog junctions will welcome its first motorists on Wednesday.
To coincide with the milestone new drone footage of the section has been released.
The Blackdog junction opened to traffic last month to provide improved access to Potterton and Blackdog.
On launching the road will have a speed limit of 70mph with a reduced limit on approach to the slip roads.
It will provide improved links to Dyce, Bridge of Don and the realigned A947 Aberdeen to Banff road, as well as the B977 and B999.
Cabinet Secretary for the economy Keith Brown said: “I am pleased to confirm that a new seven kilometre section of the A90 between Parkhill and Blackdog will open this week.
“I am sure this news will be appreciated by local communities, road users and businesses in the north east who continue to be extremely patient while these works are being undertaken.
“The Parkhill to Blackdog section is the first section of the AWPR mainline trunk road to open and is the most substantial section of the project to open to date.
“We said we would open new sections of road when possible, and we have stood by that commitment.
“These new junctions and section of road will provide thousands of drivers every day with a range of benefits, including reduced journey times, improved journey time reliability, better local access and reduced congestion, while safety will also be enhanced.
“Indeed, once the new road opens in its entirety, drivers will also have improved links to the north and south of Aberdeen, as well as to local areas.”
