Written by on 18/03/2024

Road users in Arbroath are set for 77 weeks of disruption for roadworks along the centre of the A92 from Tuesday 2nd April 2024. 

As part of the “Arbroath A Place For Everyone” redevelopment, works will be taking place on the A92 dual carriageway between Dundee road next to the football stadium and the Guthrie Port roundabout.

The redevelopment is set to reduce the dual carriageway down to a single lane in each direction, with a cycle lane running from the junction with Queens Drive through the town centre to Guthrie Port roundabout.  The £14 million redevelopment is being partially funded by Angus Council, who are contributing £4 million towards the scheme, along with Sustrans contributing £10 million and the UK Government.

The works will be broken up in to phases with the first one starting on April 2nd this year. This will involve the closure of 1 lane on each carriageway between Gayfield and the roundabout by Ladyloan and the marina with this phase expected to end around August 2024, although no date has been announced. 

Locals should have received information with information relating to other phases of work.

The redesigned Inchcape Park turn off.

Arcadis who are the design consultants have released a flyover video on YouTube to show what the re-designed town centre road and green land will look like.  

The estimated finish date from the road notice signs will be the 23rd September 2025. 2 Key dates announced so far are the Guthrie Port roundabout re-construction, starting in May 2024 and is expected to last around 4 weeks, and A92 Burnside Drive, where the carriageway will be widened and re-aligned further in to where the current central reservation lies. This is due to start in May 2024 and predicted to last around 8 weeks.

Further information is available from the Angus Council website and we will update this when more is released over the coming weeks.
