An £848,000 essential maintenance contract to resurface the A90 eastbound carriageway from Kinfauns Castle to St Madoes, five miles east of Perth, was awarded this week.
Transport Scotland today announced that Tayside Contracts will be undertaking the work which will deliver 2.6km of new surface, benefitting motorists with a smoother, safer journey.
Transport Scotland’s Project Manager David Stafford said: “We are pleased to announce the contract award for these essential maintenance works on the A90. This scheme will help maintain and improve this vital link from Perth to Aberdeen.
“This resurfacing contract will involve the removal and replacement of the upper carriageway layers, which will restore the ride quality and extend the life of the road.”
As the works are adjacent to the River Tay there will be mitigation measures in place to prevent pollution and all asphalt material will be removed from site and recycled.
Works are expected to begin early summer for a period of ten days, and will be managed by BEAR Scotland.
