Driv­ers warned of di­ver­sions as busy route shuts for work on by­pass

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

A BUSY North-east road was to close for the week­end to­day for work on the Aberdeen by­pass.

The A93 North Dee­side Road was to shut from 8pm tonight un­til 5am on Mon­day to the west of Mill­tim­ber Brae for sur­fac­ing work. Driv­ers trav­el­ling from Aberdeen to Cul­ter can take a di­ver­sion via the A93 Great West­ern Road, Spring­field Road, Queen’s Road, A944 Skene Road, B9119 Tar­land Road and the B979 Mal­colm Road, at which point they can re­join the A93 west of the clo­sure. Mo­torists go­ing from Cul­ter to Aberdeen can do the re­verse. Trans­port Scot­land said mo­torists look­ing to travel south will be able to ac­cess the B979 at Mill­tim­ber Brae un­der tem­po­rary traf­fic sig­nals.

A spokesman for First Bus said its ser­vices would be af­fected by the clo­sures.

“Due to the road clo­sure, the nor­mal 19 ser­vice will be run­ning but will ter­mi­nate near the new bridge at Mill­tim­ber Brae. A shut­tle bus will run from the Al­byn School play­ing fields to Cul­ter.”
