Motorists were today asked to be aware of forthcoming major roadworks for resurfacing starting this month.
The £333,000 work for King George VI bridge is for resurfacing and waterproofing and starts at 6am on Tuesday 14 March, 2023 and is due to finish at 7pm on Friday, 9 June, 2023.
Drivers are advised to avoid the area and use alternative routes. Bus passengers should check bus company websites or contact bus companies for how the roadworks affect routes.
An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “The route is being closed for major resurfacing works which will make a difference to people using the roads in the area.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused during the roadworks and would encourage people to take heed of the works, the dates, and plan their route before starting their journey by using alternative routes.”
For the King George VI bridge work, the work is being split into two phases and one lane of one of the two carriageways will always be open in one direction during these phases. Both pavements on the bridge will be always open for pedestrians during the work. The switchover of traffic restrictions between phases one and two will take place one evening between Tuesday 13 April and Tuesday 27 April.
The bridge will be closed north-bound during phase one of the works, with only one lane heading south. Roads affected include Great Southern Road between its junctions with Duthie Park roundabout and the King George VI bridge roundabout, and the A92 Stonehaven Road between its junctions with Bridge of Dee roundabout and the Garthdee roundabout.
The bridge will be closed south-bound during phase two, with only one lane heading north. Roads affected included Great Southern Road between its junctions with King George VI bridge roundabout and the Duthie Park roundabout, and the A92 Stonehaven Road between its junctions with Bridge of Dee roundabout and the Garthdee roundabout.
The local diversion during both phases of the work is via the Bridge of Dee.
