  Bridge of Dee, Aberdeen

These pages provide information on this key transportation project being carried out to investigate capacity issues and potential opportunities relating to the existing transport network in the Bridge of Dee area of Aberdeen. This study is currently being funded by NESTRANS, the Regional Transport partnership for the North East of Scotland.

The study follows on from a previous study, completed in May 2008, to develop options to improve traffic flows on the A90(T) Stonehaven Road and A956 Wellington Road corridor approaches to Aberdeen from the South in the short, medium and long term. In particular the previous study identified the long term need for additional capacity across the River Dee and investigation of these capacity issues will be the main focus of this present study.

Although a number of historic studies have been carried out on this issue at various times in the past, the assumptions underlying each of these studies have changed over time. While reference will be made to these studies for background understanding, this study will establish an appropriate present-day starting point. The study will be carried out using standard Government assessment methods and in particular will adopt the approach set out in the Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG). The study will also include full engagement with Stakeholders throughout the process. For details of the STAG process please click on the following link:
