SURFACING improvements of £90,000 are set to go ahead next week on the A95 between Belleheiglash and Georgetown near Marypark.
Work is scheduled to start on Tuesday 26 October and will last for three days.
The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the A95, creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.
Work will take place between 9am and 6pm each day, with surfacing due to be completed by 6pm on Thursday 28 October, subject to weather conditions.
A lane closure with a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours. The convoy system will be removed overnight however due to the nature of the works, one lane of the A95 will remain closed and temporary traffic lights will be in place for the duration of the works.
Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: "This surfacing project near Marypark has been designed to improve the general condition and safety of this section of the A95 for motorists.
"The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of both roadworkers and motorists. Regrettably there will be some delays but our teams will do all they can to complete the scheme as safely and quickly as possible.
"We thank motorists for the patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A95. We encourage them to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and allow some extra time to reach their destination."
