Drivers in Aberdeen could face delays over the next few days as lorries deliver huge steel beams for a new bridge over the River Don.
The slow-moving trucks will be taking four 60-tonne pieces of steel through the heart of the city, including Union Street, Holburn Street, King Street and Great Northern Road.
They will be going to the north and south sides of the river at the Grandholm Village and Tillydrone construction sites.
The city council said that the actual times of the transportation will be dependent on traffic volumes in the city and so have not been set yet, although it will not be during rush-hours.
The arrival of the beams will mark a key milestone in the construction of the so-called Third Don Crossing.
Council finance committee vice-convener Ross Thomson said: “This is a major part of the construction for the Third Don Crossing which will make a huge difference to traffic getting around the north part of the city.
“We appreciate the lorries delivering the steel beams will be slow-moving and we ask that drivers are patient while this takes place.
“I’m sure people will be looking forward to seeing the beams being lifted into place in a few weeks’ time.”
The £18million bridge scheme will see the construction of a new single carriageway link road between the Parkway and Whitestripes Road junction and the Tillydrone Avenue and St Machar Drive junctions.
Work started last November and the contract completion date has been extended to January 2016.
