WCN Editorial Team 20 Mar 2020 EUROPE TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Aberdeen City Council has submitted a full planning application for the Berryden Corridor Improvement Project, which is expected to enhance the road network in the city.

As Berryden Road and nearby roads are currently operating beyond capacity, the project will improve the efficiency of the road, cycleway and pavement network through improving journey time reliability, relieving congestion, and improving infrastructure for walking and cycling. 

The upgrade project will involve the widening of the existing road and junction improvements from Skene Square to Ashgrove Road.

It will also include the construction of a new section of road between Ashgrove Road and Kittybrewster roundabout adding more than 1.7miles of additional lane capacity.

The improved section of road would have traffic light junctions instead of roundabouts, except for the Kittybrewster roundabout which will remain. 

Upon completion, the improvement project will offer over 10 new pedestrian crossings, nearly 0.8 miles of additional footways, and 2.2 miles of new cycle tracks. 

The Berryden Corridor improvement project is one of many projects being undertaken by Aberdeen City Council as part of a £1bn programme across the city.

Aberdeen City Council transport spokeswoman Councillor Sandra Macdonald said: “It is to be welcomed that the planning application and various consents have been applied for the Berryden Corridor Improvement Project. 

“It is a significant step for this roads network scheme which will help journey time reliability, relieve congestion, and improve infrastructure for walking and cycling. 

“I would encourage people to view the documents for the planning application and consents and take part in the process for the new road, pavements and cycling infrastructure being built.”
