An Aberdeenshire bridge is to undergo a £400,000 upgrade.
Major work to refurbish the A957 Durris Bridge at Crathes is due to begin on September 11 for 14 weeks.
The bridge, which was built in 1977, needs essential maintenance to ensure it continues to be safe for drivers.
Work includes the replacement of movement joints, including alterations to the concrete bridge deck, the application of a protective paint coating to the ends of the main girders, deck waterproofing repairs as well as new road and footway surfacing.
Donald Macpherson, structures manager at Aberdeenshire Council, said: “The work has been carefully planned to ensure disruption to road users is kept to an absolute minimum, with the work being carried out in the shortest timeframe possible.”
The A957 will remain open with work being carried out using single lane working. A 30mph speed limit will be in place with four-way, temporary traffic lights.
