Councillors have been urged to perform a U-turn on plans to create two one-way streets in Aberdeen.
A consultation was launched in 2017 into the proposals for Gray Street and Salisbury Terrace due to the large number of parked cars making it difficult for two lines of traffic to pass through them.
There had been complaints of cars being damaged as other traffic navigated its way on the streets.
The results of an informal questionnaire showed around 80% of those who responded in Gray Street were in favour of the change while around 60% backed the plans for Salisbury Terrace.
However, local businesses complained about the proposal which they said would be “detrimental to their ongoing trading” according to a report to councillors.
The Aberdeen Cycle Forum has submitted an objection on the basis it’s considered the one-way system does not benefit cyclists or pedestrians.
Ashley and Broomhill Community Council expressed concern about the extent of the informal consultation and the number of letters sent out and said that the AWPR could reduce traffic on the streets anyway.
The report reads: “As can be appreciated from the objections received, the introduction of a oneway system can be highly contentious and can have wide ramifications when considering possible negative outcomes.
“A common theme from objectors is whether the occasion where opposing vehicles may meet really warrants the introduction on a one-way system?”
Now a report to next week’s operational delivery committee has recommended councillors vote to “take no further action”.
