B999 CLOSED BETWEEN TARVES AND PITMEDDEN AT DINNESWOOD GARAGE. 12 JAN

logoAberdeenshire Council have advised that becasue water is not draining away as fast as expected from localised flooding, the B999 btween Tarves and Pitmedden at Dinneswood is CLOSED.

The water depth is high and marginal for many cars to have problems, although it is possible to get through. However, as there is a risk for some vehicles, signs have been put up by Police Scotland to say the road is closed.

Police Scotland have said it is an offence to go through a road closed sign like this and you may void your insurance if you did and had a subsequent problem.

Buses
290Bus-TarvesThis is why the buses, despite running during the day yesterday ceased after dark. Stagecoach bluebird had previously gone through, but new rain last night and today means they will not ignore a closed sign.

Buses are running from Pitmedden to Aberdeen.

 

Travel by Car

To avoid the closure travel to Tarves crossroads and carry straight on to Cairnbrogie Crossroads, then left to Pitmedden to rejoin the B999. This road has some periodic surface water issues so drive carefully.
