Road Closures on Various Roads in Marr from 1 May, 2019 to 30 September, 2019, to be applicable when site signs are displayed - including B976 Distillery Brae to
Abergeldie and B976 Burnroot Sawmill to Dinnet Bridge
Four bridges on the A957 Stonehaven to Crathes Slug Road will be closed while essential maintenance is carried out this summer.
Rolling closures will be in place throughout July and August, meaning once engineers have finished with one bridge, they will move on to the next.
The repairs are needed due to repeated impacts by vehicles and general deterioration due to age – while inconvenient, doing this work now avoids longer closures later.
It is being done during the summer to allow traditional materials and techniques to be used, necessary given the historical significance of the bridges.
The continuous rolling closures over eight weeks are necessary to ensure the safety of the workforce and will take place on the following dates:
• A957 Blairydrine Bridge – 1/7/2019 to 14/7/2019
• A957 Cowton Bridge – 15/7/2019 to 11/8/2019
• A957 Mowtie Bridge – 12/8/2019 to 18/8/2019
• A957 Findlayston Bridge – 19/8/2019 to 24/8/2019
Attached is a map showing the location of the four bridges.
The diversion route throughout the closure will be via the new AWPR (A90) Stonehaven to Milltimber and A93 Milltimber to Crathes.
A news release should be issued next week to give early notice of intent.
