Work will begin on Wednesday to install temporary stabilisation blocks at a cracked wall in Gardenstown.

Main Street in the fishing village was closed on Monday after cracks were discovered in the retaining roadside wall.

Following detailed inspections this morning the road remains closed, albeit limited access was available until 5pm if absolutely necessary as long as there was no visible movement in the wall.

Inspections were carried out on the cracked wall in Gardenstown on Tuesday.

The road is now once again under a full closure on safety grounds.

Aberdeenshire Council's head of roads, landscape services and waste management Philip McKay said: "We are preparing for the installation of temporary stabilisation blocks tomorrow which, once complete, should allow us to open the road under temporary traffic lights.

“We have also been in discussion with the owner of the wall and will continue to provide them with appropriate advice and guidance as they consider options for a permanent solution.”
