A major section of the Aberdeen bypass will open next week.
In today’s committee meeting Stephen Tarr from Balfour Beatty confirmed that investors have given their consent to open the 20-mile, southern stretch of road next week.
Aberdeen bypass contractors have said work on the River Don Crossing should be finished by Christmas subject to the weather and safety checks.
A document submitted to the Scottish Parliament by Balfour Beatty and Galliford Try has said completion of the crossing would allow for the “opening of the full project”.
The paper was lodged with Holyrood ahead of a committee meeting today where contractors will be grilled by MSPs amid mounting concern over the delays and costs to the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR)
