Traffic collisions on A90 dual carriageways near Glencarse and St Madoes flyover: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004

Information requested

1. Details of the number of road traffic collisions over the last 10 years on the A90 dual carriageway near to the Glencarse and St Madoes flyover, specifically those involving vehicles having collided with the said C484 Low Carse Road flyover (type of vehicle involved, reason for collision i.e. height of vehicle itself or load it was carrying etc)Íž

2. Details of the number of crashes involving vehicles colliding with other flyovers on the same stretch of road (A90) over the last 10 years.


While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance Transport Scotland does not have some of the information you have requested. However, you may wish to contact Police Scotland at This is because we do not record the reason for collisions, height of vehicles and load being carried.

We know this structure as A90 200 Glencarse Overbridge. Within this time period the bridge is known to have been struck twice, on both occasions by over-height vehicles. Specifically low loaders carrying excavators in combination with other items of plant.

There have been 10 recorded bridge strikes on the A90 in this time period, including the 2 at Glencarse Overbridge referenced above. These bridge strikes were located between the Pitmedden Farm Access Overbridge and Glencarse Overbridge.
