Concern has been expressed by the north east's planning authority at the delay in the building of the Aberdeen bypass.

The bypass is aimed at creating a fast link to the north, west and south of Aberdeen.

The Aberdeen City and Shire's Strategic Development Planning Authority is calling for a swift conclusion to legal action by objectors blocking the plan.

The SDPA said other improvements to the roads network were dependent on the bypass moving ahead.

Opponents have criticised the cost and environmental impact of the project, which would cost hundreds of millions of pounds.
