11/04/17 11:36 Filed in: News
The B977 is to close in two locations for during April. But the dates have changed since the original notification.
The B977 through Fintray village will be closed From 8pm on Monday, April 10 to 5 am on Friday, April 14 for works to be carried out by BT. The section to be closed is from the junction with Lairds Park for 60 metres north east. The Aberdeenshire road closures website
says it will be closed from 9.30am to 3.30pm. The alternative route is by Keithhall and the B993.
However, when we passed through Fintray on Tuesday, April 11, it appeared the road was open as usual.
It had been reported on the Aberdeenshire road closures website
that the B977 would be closed at the level crossing at Boat of Kintore for four nights later this month. However, the website has now brought this forward to April 10 to 13 and that the closures are scheduled for overnight (10 pm to 5 am) only. However, when we passed today the level crossing was completely closed during the day.
The closure is to allow Network Rail to carry out work on the crossing. The alternative route is by Blackburn and the B979.
