Stonehaven firm to lead Aberdeen junction project

STONEHAVEN firm, W M Donald, has been appointed as the main contractor for Aberdeen’s South College Street junction improvements project.

The Aberdeen City Council project includes a package of junction improvements and road widening measures, which it said will increase capacity and improve traffic flow on the section of the road.

Further additions will include new segregated facilities for pedestrians and cyclists alongside the carriageway; additional traffic lanes; a new signal controlled junction; new altered walking and cycling infrastructure; and reconfigured parking and loading areas.

W M Donald MD, Ewan Riddoch, said, “W M Donald is delighted to have been awarded the South College Street improvement works and look forward to working closely with Aberdeen City Council to deliver a high quality service with the minimum of disruption to the travelling public.”

Aberdeen City Council transport spokesperson, councillor Sandra Macdonald, said, “We welcome the appointment of WM Donald as it is a major step forward for this big infrastructure project. Making these improvements is the next step towards providing a transport network to meet Aberdeen’s needs, including our city centre and bus priority aspirations, as well as improving traffic flow in the area and encouraging more walking and cycling. We look forward to seeing the construction work progress in the coming months.”
