Please note the overnight road closures on the A93 south of Braemar commencing this coming Sunday for several weeks.
The closures do not affect Friday and Saturday nights.🚧 Resurfacing works, A93, from Sunday 26 May 2024 🚧

We plan to carry out essential road resurfacing works on the A93 between Broughdearg and Tigh-na-Coille, starting on Sunday 26 May 2024. The works will be split into two phases and will be completed under a night-time road closure between 8pm and 6am, Sunday to Thursday, for approximately 20 nights.

Outside the closure times, the A93 will be open to traffic during the day time and over weekends from 6am Friday until 8pm Sunday.

Phase 1: – A93 Broughdearg to Polgorm, beginning Sunday 26 May 2024 for approx. 10 nights – this section runs from the Broughdearg junction to the property ‘Polgorm’.

Phase 2: – A93 Tigh-na-Coille to Polgorm, scheduled to begin Sunday 9 June 2024 for approx. 10 nights – this section of the works runs from the access to the property ‘Polgorm’ to the property ‘Tigh-na-Coille’ and will tie into the section of new road surface laid in 2023.

The two phases are shown on the location map below marked in red (Phase 1) and blue (Phase 2). During the night-time road closure, the official diversion route will be via the A93, Rattray, A926, Kirriemuir, A90, Stonehaven, A957, Banchory and A93, and vice versa.

In the event of the works in Phase 1 finishing ahead of schedule, our contractor will begin phase 2 earlier to reduce the overall duration of the project. We will advise residents and motorists of any changes via advisory road signs and information here on our social media channels.
