Busy commuter road to close for AWPR work

Motorists have been advised of the upcoming closure of a “well-used” Aberdeen commuter route due to the city bypass scheme.

A section of the C89C road between the Chapel of Stoneywood and Fairley Road will close over the weekend as progress continues on the AWPR scheme.

The C88C stretch between Newhills Road and Kingswells Crescent will be off-limits between 8pm on Friday and 6am on Monday as surfacing work is performed at the Dykeside roundabout.

Road users intending to drive north beyond the closure should travel east via the A944 Skene Road and Lang Stracht.

They should then join the A90 at North Anderson Drive and continue their journey along A96 Auchmill Road, Inverurie Road and the C88C Kepplehills Road, re-joining the C89C north of the closure.

The reverse journey should be used for those intending to head south.

A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “This road is a well-used commuter route and the contractor has timed this closure to take place over a weekend to minimise the impact it may have on road users.

“However, we would like to encourage those drivers who would consider using this route at weekends to plan their journey in advance.

“They should also give themselves additional travelling time so that they can reach their destination safely and on time.
