A stretch of industrial estate has been identified as the “missing link” in one of the city’s popular cycle paths.
Council chiefs hope to create a cycleway on Craigshaw Drive, joining the existing ‘Shell Path’ and Wellington Road at Tullos.
Aberdeen residents are being urged to give their views on the proposed cycle improvements, which would see parking and loading of vehicles prohibited along the full length of Craigshaw Drive.
Two formal crossings are proposed, one on Craigshaw Drive and one on Abbotswell Road, incorporating a cycle crossing in parallel with zebra crossing.
The next stage of the project after the consultation would be to finalise the detailed design, secure funding and start the process to promote a Traffic Regulation Order to prohibit parking and loading on Craigshaw Drive.
Council transport spokesman Councillor Ross Grant said: “There have been improvements to the Shell Path in Abbotswell Woodland and Wellington Road and we have been conscious there has been a missing link connecting these two areas.”
The plans can be viewed at https://consultation.aberdeencity.gov.uk/planning/craigshaw-drivecraigshaw-drive, with December 9 the closing date for comments.
