WM Donald has started works on Aberdeen City Council’s South College Street junction improvements project.

The local authority said the works will improve traffic flow on the section of the city’s road network. The project includes a package of junction improvements and road widening measures, as well as the creation of shared facilities for pedestrians and cyclists alongside the road.

Once complete, the council said that the project will support its city centre masterplan’s infrastructure strategy for bus priority measures aimed at removing the impact of congestion on bus journey times through the city centre.

It added that it will also enable the implementation of public enhancements along Guild Street and Union Street, providing alternative options to accommodate the rerouting of vehicular traffic.

Aberdeen City Council operational delivery committee convener, councillor Miranda Radley, said, “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.”
