Plans for Aberdeen bridge safety barrier

Union Bridge

A planning application for a barrier aimed at stopping suicide attempts from a bridge in the centre of Aberdeen has been submitted.

Temporary fencing has been in place in front of the bridge parapet on Union Street as a deterrent.

The proposed Union Bridge barrier would be made from steel.

The council said that, if approved, the work would be delivered as part of the Union Terrace Gardens improvement project.
