The first in a series of public meetings about the Third Don Crossing is being held tonight.
The event will be open to locals who want to know more about the scheme, construction work and related mitigation measures, and will be led by Aberdeen City Council’s finance convener Willie Young.
It is hoped the new link – along with the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) and improvements to the Haudagain roundabout – will help to ease traffic congestion in the city.
The scheme will involve the construction of the crossing itself, a stretch of road linking it to the road network north of the River Don and the realignment and upgrading of roads to the south of the river.
Work on the new bridge will start later this year and is due to be open to the public by late 2015.
Members of the project team will also be on hand to answer any questions at the meeting, which is being held at Tillydrone Community Centre, Gordon Mills Road, from 7pm until 9pm.
