Plans to end gridlock at Haudagain Roundabout revealed

Plans to end gridlock at Aberdeen’s notorious Haudagain roundabout will go on public display in the city next week.

Construction work is due to begin at the congestion bottleneck when the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route is completed in two years.

Transport Scotland is today publishing its draft road orders and environmental statement for the scheme, which will involve a new dualled link road connecting North Anderson Drive with Auchmill Road.

A public exhibition on the designs will go on show at Lord Provost Henry E Rae Community Centre on Wednesday and Thursday next week.

Transport Minister Derek Mackay said: “We understand the frustration felt by those road users affected by the longstanding traffic bottleneck at Haudagain, and we remain on target to start the work once the bypass is completed in a little over two years.

“Having identified a preferred option of a new dual carriageway link road for Haudagain last April, we are set to publish draft orders for the scheme, so I’d encourage anyone interested to come along to one of the public exhibitions next week to see the plans for themselves and share their views.

“In parallel with taking forward the design work for this scheme, Transport Scotland officials continue to work closely with the council officials, who are responsible for the Middlefield Regeneration scheme, to identify a joint programme to progress both projects in tandem.”

The SNP minister added: “We made a promise to deliver a new bypass and we are delivering.

“With the statutory work on Haudagain now underway, we are also making good on our promise to improve the north east’s most notorious bottleneck which will soon deliver further road improvements for Aberdeen and for the north east.”
