Motorists face diversions due to resurfacing at busy Aberdeen roundabout

The Garthdee roundabout, where work is due to start.

Diversions will be in place at a busy city roundabout while resurfacing takes place.

The A90 Garthdee roundabout in Aberdeen will see overnight work take place to address defects on the road surface – such as cracking, potholes, and other issues, to create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

Roadworks will begin on Monday, taking place over four nights, between 7.30pm and 6.30am, and will finish on Friday.

Works to the roundabout are set to take place in phases each night, with different traffic management in place as it progresses.

Motorists will still be able to use the roundabout for the duration of the improvements, however in order to preserve the safety of all road users, some diversions will be in place overnight.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North-east representative, said: “These works have been designed to improve the safety and general condition of this section of the A90 for motorists.

“The resurfacing improvements have been scheduled to take place overnight to limit any impact to motorists, and we’ve taken steps to avoid working into the weekend to further reduce any disruption during the works.

“We would, however, encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”

Diversions include the temporary closure of the Bridge of Dee and the partial closure of the A90, between Garthdee roundabout and Broomhill Road Roundabout.

Traffic looking to travel this way will be diverted via Great Southern Road and Broomhill Road.

Local access will be preserved for residents of South Anderson Drive, Headland Court and Ruthrieston Road.

Those who live in Headland Court are asked to drive south from the A90 from the Broomhill Road roundabout, entering a managed traffic system to enter the street.

Access between Holburn Street and Garthdee Road will be maintained.
