The speed limit in a north-east village has dropped for two months while road surfacing works are carried out.
A temporary traffic order has been created for a section of the road on the B999 at Whitecairns, which will be in place for 49 days, until February 3, while road re-surfacing works are ongoing.
The road, which is usually a 50mph limit, has been dropped to 30mph in order to protect the safety of the work force operating in the area.
The new speed will only be in place while traffic lights in Whitecairns are in operation.
