Roadworks - closures and restrictions
Activities such as roadworks, temporary traffic lights and road closures can lead to delays and affect your journey times. To minimise any travel delays our Roads team controls all activities on the public road network.
We are not responsible for maintaining trunk roads (A90 and A96 in Aberdeenshire). You can view closures and restrictions on A90 and A96 on Traffic Scotland website.
We put traffic restrictions in place using a temporary traffic measure. The most common forms of restrictions are temporary road closures and speed limits, and they are usually required for roadworks. Other temporary restrictions can include weight limit, prohibition of waiting or one way. Road closures or restrictions may also be required for local gala events or public gatherings.
We identify alternative traffic routes and diversions where possible.
Alternatively, you can view closures and restrictions on Roadworks Scotland website. Under filter tools you can choose to zoom to Aberdeenshire area.
