The work is part of a £360,000 improvement project in the area to install traffic lights following complaints of tailbacks and numerous crashes at the junction.
The new lights will be installed at the roundabout and the two connected slips.
It is being funded by Transport Scotland, Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council, with the ongoing maintenance costs being covered by Aberdeen City Council.
A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “Safety is of paramount importance to us. We continue to advise motorists to adjust their driving to align with road conditions and always to approach any junction with care.”
Work had already started earlier this month for the site, with one of the lanes on the A944 at the AWPR South Kingswells junction shut until August 7 at 5pm.
