If you are not already aware, please note that the A944 Alford to Aberdeen road is going to be affected by 2 road closures as follows:-
29/8/16 to 9/9/16 – Westhill to Dunecht
12/9/16 to 23/9/16 – Dunecht to Sauchen
Full details of the closures and alternative routes can be viewed at:-
Personally, I think it is a bit much that commuters are going to be affected for a whole month rather than staggering the times of the closures.
