Scottish Water to carry out weekend work near Haudagain Roundabout, Aberdeen

Scottish Water is set to carry out work over 2 weekends to install new water mains beneath the A96 (Great Northern Road), west of the Haudagain Roundabout in Aberdeen.

This essential work forms part of a £3.2 million investment to renew and upgrade water mains in order to meet the needs of growing communities while maintaining service to existing customers.

To allow the work to take place safely, the westbound carriageway of the A96 from the Haudagain Roundabout will be closed to traffic during each weekend of the planned works.  Dates and duration for each weekend are given below:


Weekend 1:  From 6am on Saturday 18th July until 6am on Monday 20th July.

Weekend 2:  From 6am on Saturday 25th July until 6am on Monday 27th July.


Over both weekends there will be a signposted diversion in place via the A92, Mugiemoss Road and the A947 at Bucksburn.

These works have been carefully planned in consultation with Aberdeen City Council, Transport Scotland and BEAR Scotland to minimise impact on the road network at busier times.

The new water mains we are installing will ensure that both existing and future customers in the area receive a reliable supply of clear, fresh and great-tasting drinking water for years to come.

We appreciate there has been significant construction work taking place in this part of the city and will do all we can to keep disruption for residents and road-users to a minimum while we complete this essential work. We would encourage road users to allow some extra time for their journeys and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
