A major north-east roundabout is set to close for resurfacing works next week.
The Ellon South roundabout on the A90 will shut on Monday, with overnight work taking place for seven nights. A 14-mile diversion will be in place.
Drivers will be unable to use the roundabout from 7.30pm each night, with cars being able to drive on the road from 6.30am every day.
Contractors Bear Scotland are investing £160,000 in the work.
Andy Thompson, Bear Scotland’s north-east representative, said: “This £160,000 project has been designed to improve the general condition and safety of the Ellon South roundabout for motorists.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists during the project.
“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for road users as much as possible during the improvements, including carrying out the works overnight and avoiding working Saturday and Sunday nights.
“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these works on the A90.
“We encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
Consultation has been undertaken with local residents and Aberdeenshire Council in a bid to minimise the issues that could be experienced as a result of the resurfacing.
