Option 5Haudagain Option 05

Description

The main features of Option 5 are the retention of the existing roundabout at Haudagain and a new dual carriageway link road  connecting North Anderson Drive (the southern arm of the roundabout) with Auchmill Road (the western arm). This link road would also provide access to the proposed regeneration area at Middlefield and an opportunity for any potential commercial development to access the road network. The junctions for this link road would be traffic signal controlled. Pedestrian, cycle and public transport facilities have been developed as part of this option. The cost of the proposal would be around 12million.

How it would operate

In traffic operating terms, the link road relieves the existing Haudagain roundabout of a dominant right turning movement from Auchmill Road to North Anderson Drive and the left turn from North Anderson Drive to Auchmill Road. This frees up the Haudagain roundabout to operate more efficiently with balanced traffic flows. The link road also provides an opportunity to access the road network by potential commercial development. Traffic signals on the link road would be set to allow a progression of traffic along the link road to minimise delays. In the short term, to achieve the greatest benefits of this option, it is recommended that no development take place off the link road before the opening of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route with the traffic relief benefits created.
