Work on the Balmedie-Tipperty section of the Aberdeen bypass is about to gather pace.

It comes as Cabinet Secretary for infrastructure, investment and cities Keith Brown confirmed the massive AWPR project is making good headway.

Balmedie junction will provide many people with the first real chance to see major works happening

And in a review of work in 2015 and looking ahead, Mr Brown revealed real progress would be witnessed early in the New Year on the Balmedie-Tipperty 
dual carriageway.

He said: “It is the works at Balmedie junction which will provide many people with the first real chance to see major works happening as these move up a gear early in the New Year.

“A great deal of planning has gone into ensuring 
two lanes of traffic are 
maintained on the A90 during peak periods as the junction is created – keeping existing traffic moving whilst construction 
goes on.

“Works at the Tipperty junction will also continue with the pouring of the concrete bridge deck and formation of approach roads 
set to start.

“There will also be significant works getting under way on the Newburgh Junction, as well as smaller bridges and underpasses to ensure access to local 
side roads.”

Mr Brown added: “This project is a mammoth undertaking, but one we are relishing, and there is much to look forward to this year with the first sections of the new road due to open to 
the public.”
