Warning of delays as road closes for bypass works
Motorists have been warned to expect delays this weekend when a planned road closure takes place for Aberdeen bypass works.
The North Deeside Road will be closed for three nights and a 15-mile diversion will be put in place as surfacing works are carried out near the new bridge.
Traffic from Aberdeen will be diverted along Springfield Road, on to the B9119 Queen’s Road, A944 Skene Road, B9119 Tarland Road and the B979 Malcolm Road, at which point it can rejoin the A93 at Peterculter, west of the closure.
The operation is due to begin tonight at 8pm and last until Monday at 5am.
The reverse journey should be taken by those wishing to travel east into Aberdeen.
Drivers travelling west on the A93 will be able to access the B979 Milltimber Brae under temporary traffic signals and drivers heading north on the B979 Milltimber Brae will only be able to access the A93 eastbound.
