Haudagain Roundabout Stag Appraisal - CONSULTATION CLOSED

The Scottish Executive and NESTRANS (North East of Scotland Transport Partnership) funded a study to investigate various options for improving traffic flows at the Haudagain roundabout in the short term up to 2007, medium term up to 2011 and long term up to 2021. The long term scenarios tested include the predicted impact of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route. A STAG (Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance) appraisal was undertaken to consider the following:

  • analysis of existing and potential problems, constraints and opportunities at the junction
  • setting objectives that any options should address (objectives should be considered under the STAG appraisal headings relating to Environment, Safety, Economy, Social Inclusion and Accessibility and Integration)
  • option generation, sifting and development

The Council took the opportunity to identify public opinion on the options that have been tested to date in traffic terms and to identify if there are further solutions that could meet the objectives that have been set and should therefore also be considered. Feedback on the options tested and any new options identified was incorporated into the STAG appraisal which identified an overall preferred option to be taken forward for further consideration. The options have been assessed to date in traffic terms only and no account has been taken at this stage of land availability, design constraints or detailed costs. The consultation ended on 18 August 2006.

An exhibition of the Haudagain options was held in association with an exhibition for the Middlefield Regeneration Draft Masterplan, which is being developed at the same time by the Council. They will both took place in the Henry E Rae Community Centre on Manor Avenue between 24 - 28 July 2006. For further information please contact us:
