The works will cause some disruption next week with temporary traffic lights in place and a 10mph convoy system.

Works are set to get underway from Tuesday, November 2 at 9am and are expected to to be completed by 6pm on Friday, November 5.

The improvements will address defects in the road surface on the A95 at Hillockhead Wood creating a safer and smoother road surface for motorists.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, a lane closure with temporary traffic signals and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours. The convoy system will be removed overnight. One lane of the A95 will remain closed and temporary traffic lights will be in place during the week.

Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland's North East Unit Representative, said: "This £80,000 surfacing project near Hillockhead Wood 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."
