Overnight clo­sure for road

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

THE A90 be­tween Aberdeen and Peter­head was closed at the El­lon by­pass for an ex­tra night for the road sur­face to be up­graded. The stretch was closed from 7.30pm yes­ter­day to 6.30am to­day, as part of the £250,000 work. Orig­i­nally, the work was hoped to be com­pleted by yes­ter­day morn­ing af­ter be­ing closed since Fri­day night, but a de­lay in the de­liv­ery of as­phalt on site meant it had to be de­layed by an ex­tra night. The road had pre­vi­ously been closed over a week­end in Septem­ber as part of the work. Andy Thompson from Bear Scot­land said: “These £250,000 works are part of a larger main­te­nance project which also saw work on this sec­tion of the A90 com­pleted last month. “The project has been de­signed to im­prove the gen­eral con­di­tion and safety of this sec­tion of the A90 for mo­torists. “To keep ev­ery­one safe dur­ing the project, a road clo­sure is nec­es­sary dur­ing these im­prove­ments.”
