Last chance to object to Berryden corridor

Residents have been warned that the last chance to object to compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) for Aberdeen’s Berryden corridor scheme is next Friday.

The £26.4million plan aims to reduce gridlock around some of the city’s pinch points.

However, council chiefs plan to use CPO to buy around 100 plots of land from nearby residents.

This would require the approval of Scottish ministers.

Last year, ground investigations took place for the new council road, which will stretch from the Skene Square roundabout to St Machar/A96 roundabout.

Empty former garage buildings on Powis Terrace which will form part of the route were also demolished in 2017.

It will involve widening the existing road and junction improvements between Skene Square and Ashgrove Road, and the construction of a new section of road between Ashgrove Road and Kittybrewster roundabout.

The new section of road would have junctions instead of roundabouts, except for the Kittybrewster roundabout which would remain.

A copy of the order and a map of the proposed affected land and properties can be viewed at Central Library, Cornhill Library, and Woodside Library, and online at www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/services/roads-transport-and-parking/berryden-corridor-improvement-scheme.

Any objections must be made in writing stating the title of the order and the grounds of objection and addressed to the Scottish Ministers c/o Transport Scotland, Road Policy Team, Buchanan House, 58 Port Dundas Road, Glasgow, G4 0HF by 21 December 2018.

It is anticipated a planning application for the scheme will be submitted next year
