Barratt unveils new road in Bucksburn as part of local services commitment

David Palmer and Jackie Dunbar MSP

BARRATT Developments North Scotland has unveiled a new road at its Riverside Quarter development in Bucksburn as part of the housebuilder’s commitment to improving local roads, services and amenities.

A ribbon cutting ceremony has taken place, hosted by David Palmer (MD for Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Scotland), and attended by Aberdeen Donside MSP Jackie Dunbar.

The road has been designed to improve traffic flow and reduce traffic volume transiting through Mugiemoss Road.

Riverside Quarter forms one of the phases of the redevelopment of the former Davidson Paper Mill site, located between the Bucks Burn and the River Don in Aberdeen.

Mill Drive will connect to Stoneywood Road with a four-way traffic light system.

David Palmer said, “We place great importance on designing our developments with the needs of residents and the wider community in mind. We’re proud of our restoration of the existing built environment including Davidson’s Mill chimney, as well as the high quality, energy efficient homes we are building now and in the years to come.

“We have committed £4.2 million to local services and amenities such as pedestrian bridges and schools. In addition to this, we’ve invested £7.25 million improving local roads and infrastructure.”
