Soil Engineering Geoservices has announced that it has started work on a £186,000 ground investigation for the A90 Haudagain Improvement Scheme in Aberdeen.
Scottish transport minister Keith Brown visited the site to see the work, which he described as “vital to help shape the scheme’s design”, get underway.
The scope of the ground investigation was developed by consultant Jacobs and is designed yo be dynamic to adapt techniques as the ground conditions become apparent.
It is expected to take up to six weeks to complete the investigation with up to 12 Soil Engineering staff on site during that time. Nonetheless, work on the Haudagain A90 bypass will not get underway until 2018 when construction of the Aberdeen bypass is complete.
