Part of the A90 is set to close this weekend.

Essential maintenance of roadside equipment as part of the Aberdeen bypass will close the southbound carriageway at Stonehaven.

The closure will start at 11.30pm on Friday until 3am on Saturday with a diversion in place via the B979 Netherley road.

As part of these works, the northbound carriageway will also be reduced from two lanes to one lane from 8pm on Friday until 6am on Saturday.

A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “These closures are necessary for the contractor to carry out essential maintenance on equipment at the side of the A90 carriageway this weekend and have been timed to minimise inconvenience.”
