The following press release has been issued by Transport Scotland. Looks like it might be best to avoid the Haudagain for the next few weekends if at all possible.
Weekend lane closures on A96 Auchmill road
Road users are advised of lane closures on the A96 Auchmill Road at the Haudagain Roundabout for four consecutive weekends beginning Friday 21 February 2020.
The A96 weekend lane closures will allow preparatory work to be undertaken to construct the new A92/A96 Haudagain Improvement link road junction.
The lane closures will commence at 7 PM each Friday evening until 7 AM each Monday morning, to allow continuous 24 hour working.
A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:
“The work planned for the A96 Auchmill road will be carried out during weekends to minimise disruption to road users where possible. Drivers are asked to approach the area with caution.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank the public for their continued patience and co-operation. We ask road users to continue to be mindful of the safety of our workforce as you drive though this area.”
The project will, upon completion, help to reduce congestion and improve journey time reliability on this key route, as well as providing a safer route for pedestrians and cyclists.
Completion of the project is expected in Spring 2021.
