A96 between Craibstone Roundabout and Kinellar | Road Safety Improvements
A96 ROAD SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS BETWEEN CRAIBSTONE ROUNDABOUT AND KINELLAR BEGIN MONDAY 15TH MAY
Amey is undertaking a series of essential road safety improvements on the A96 between Craibstone Roundabout and Kinellar in Aberdeenshire.
Road safety works will be carried out from Monday 15th May to Saturday 24th June to deliver improvements to the trunk road layout and subsequent signage improvements for vehicles travelling along the A96.
Additional works will also be undertaken on local roads in the area at Clinterty Road and the B979.
The £140,00 project, which Amey is carrying out on behalf of Transport Scotland, will benefit more than 25,000 vehicles who use this route each day.
The work will deliver the following road safety improvements:
- The upgrade and installation of a number of traffic signs.
- Road marking improvements to the B979 and A96.
- Kerbing works at Tyrebagger junction within the central reservation and B979.
- Upgrade of the vehicle restraint system within the central reservation at Tyrebagger junction.
To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists lane closures will be in place on the A96 during the works.
A diversion will be in place during the construction of a traffic island at Tyrebagger junction. This will require B979 traffic destined for Tyrebagger junction to divert along the C92C and rejoin the A96 at Kinellar Junction.
Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
