A bridge to help pedestrians and cyclists could be built over part of The Deeside Way to encourage more people to use the route.
Aberdeen City Council has launched a consultation on improvements for Pittengullies Brae, where the former railway line meets Camphill School.
Those travelling have to descend to road level, cross the street at an uncontrolled junction then ascend to continue on the route.
However the council says the gradients are “quite steep” and is considering options including a signalised junction and a bridge to improve safety.
Aberdeen City Council transport spokeswoman Sandra Macdonald said: “We are continually looking to improve our road and pavement infrastructure to make it easier, and therefore encourage, more people to walk and cycle around the city.
“This project is part of the council’s active travel action plan and I’d encourage people who use The Deeside Way to take part in the survey, whether you’re an occasional user or go on it every day.”
The consultation is open until July 31 at consultation.aberdeencity.gov.uk
