Road improvements worth thousands of pounds to be carried out across Aberdeen

Union Street

A busy Aberdeen roundabout could be converted to a traffic light-controlled junction.

Aberdeen City Council and regional transport body Nestrans are looking into the idea of redeveloping the roundabout on South Anderson Drive at Broomhill Road.

Any proposals would be part of wider £25,000 plans to redevelop Anderson Drive on completion of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR)- currently scheduled for late 2017.

It is hoped that, with fewer motorists heading north and south because of the bypass, drivers in Garthdee and Broomhill will find it easier to get across the city with the new junction in place.

Nestrans chairman, Councillor Ramsay Milne, said: “Aberdeen City Council are in the early stages for commissioning a feasibility study for the Broomhill Road roundabout which would investigate the possibility of upgrading to a signalised junction.”

Other aspects of the Anderson Drive proposals include a shared pedestrian and cyclist pavement along the western side of the drive, between Bridge of Dee and Ruthrieston Road.

Meanwhile, Nestrans has also detailed plans for almost a quarter of a million-pounds worth of road upgrades in the city.

Union Street, King Street, Holburn Street and the Beach Ballroom area will all benefit from the £237,000 investment.

Under the proposals, the junction outside the ballroom will be redesigned in an effort to improve road safety.

Resurfacing work will also be carried out at various locations, including the area of Union Street outside the sheriff court.
