An Aberdeen road looks set to close for more than three months to allow for the next phase of infrastructure works at a 3,000-home development.
Countesswells Development Limited has applied to Aberdeen City Council for a temporary closure of the C128c road from Cults to Kingshill from September 28 for 13 weeks.
A new route is being built to replace the first section of the Kingswells to Cults back road, known as the C128C. The current junction with the roundabout where it meets the A944 at Kingswells will also be widened and realigned.
The works have been delayed twice already – in January 2019 and again last spring.
The development firm’s project manager Ryan Swan said: “This is a significant parcel of works and, on completion, will deliver much-needed improvements to safety and traffic flow, not just for Countesswells residents but all road users.
“In conjunction with amendments which will be made to the existing Cults-Kingshill Road, the new road will offer a fit-for-purpose route for cars, cyclists and pedestrians, providing upgraded access for residents of the growing town.
“The new road layout will offer improved connections between Countesswells and the West of the city. It demonstrates our commitment to the existing and future residents at Countesswells, as well as the wider community.”
On completion, Countesswells will include a new secondary school and two primary schools and healthcare facilities.
