Transport chiefs have been urged to properly update road signs which are now out of date after the opening of the AWPR.
The A90 Aberdeen to Peterhead road, between Stonehaven and Blackdog, was changed to the A92 as of August.
The 11-mile stretch had its designation changed as the new bypass became the A90.
Both Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire councils and Transport Scotland have been working to update hundreds of signs, however a number of roads in the city have yet to be fixed.
One concerned motorist, who sent an anonymous letter to the Press and Journal, highlighted four locations in the Bridge of Don area of the city with out of date signs – the Murcar roundabout on the B999 Tarves to Aberdeen road, the AECC roundabout, and two signs at the roundabout which connect Whitestripes Avenue and the Parkway.
They wrote: “The taxpayer expects the city council to have the capacity and enthusiasm to synchronise these necessary changes to the roads layout for the road user in a businesslike and timely fashion.”
Bridge of Don councillor John Reynolds said it was vital the signs were updated as soon as possible to prevent “rat-running” in housing estates and smaller roads.
He said: “Something needs to be done sooner rather than later and I’m sure the council officers are looking at that.”
A Transport Scotland spokesperson said: “There are a mix of trunk road and local authority roads which require signage to be updated. These works are being progressed by the road operating company and the relevant local roads authority.
“This is a significant undertaking and work has already commenced to ensure this task is completed as quickly, and as safely, as possible, while minimising any impact on road users. Meanwhile, road users should plan their journeys in advance and leave in plenty of time to get to their destination safely.”
