Amey is beginning a series of road safety improvements on the A96/A920 junction at Huntly between Monday, September 4 and Saturday 9.

The £400,000 scheme will provide a safer junction for all road users, helping to reduce vehicle speeds and adding clarification to the junction layout.

The works follows several crashes at the spot connecting the A96 Aberdeen to Inverness road and the A920 Dufftown road in recent years.

Upgrades will also deliver vehicle activated advance notification signs to advise road users travelling along the A96 of turning traffic within the junction, as well as resurfacing improvements, road markings and road studs.

Work will be undertaken in three stages.

The first stage, incorporating resurfacing and lining works, will take place between Monday, September 4 and Saturday 9, with further stages currently scheduled for late September to mid-October.

The scheme will take place between approximately 350 metres south of the A96/A920 staggered junction crossroads and 350 metres north of the junction.

All schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
