Aberdeen bypass: Public exhibitions open
- 23 June 2014
- From the section NE Scotland, Orkney & Shetland
A series of public exhibitions detailing plans for the Aberdeen bypass are under way.
The £745m project comprises the bypass and making the Balmedie to Tipperty stretch of the A90 a dual carriageway.
The Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) was first given the green light by Scottish ministers in 2009 but was delayed by legal action.
The first event on Monday at the Thistle Aberdeen Altens hotel was from 12:00 to 19:00.
Connect Roads - comprising Balfour Beatty, Galliford Try (Morrison Construction) and Carillion - was unveiled as the preferred project bidder earlier this month.
Work on the bypass is expected to be completed by the spring of 2018.
