Aberdeen Access from the South – Bridge of Dee study consultation continues
The second in a series of consultation events on potential options for a new crossing over the Bridge of Dee takes place tomorrow [Wednesday, 18 September].
Aberdeen City Council launched the public consultation on the key transportation project to investigate capacity issues and potential opportunities relating to the existing transport network in the Bridge of Dee area.
The NESTRANS-funded study follows on from a previous study, completed in May 2008, which identified the long-term need for additional capacity across the River Dee.
A number of options for Access from the South has been identified and developed for consultation with stakeholders.
The aim of the consultation is to engage with the public on the options being considered, obtain feedback and report findings as part of the Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG) Part 1 Assessment. The consultation period will run until 4 October.
As part of this, a series of public exhibitions is being held and a questionnaire will be available for feedback. The remaining dates and venues are as follows:
Wednesday, 18 September at South Holburn Church, 539A Holburn Street 10am-8pm;
Thursday, 19 September at Marischal College, Broad Street 10am-5pm.
The plans will be displayed at each venue and officers will be on hand to explain the proposed options in more detail and to answer any questions.
Details of the proposals, including layouts and operational information, can also be found in the Current Consultations section of the Aberdeen City Council website at www.aberdeencity.gov.uk Interested parties are urged to make their views known by filling in the online questionnaire which will be available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/bridgeofdee from Tuesday.
