Locals To Shape Plans For New Aberdeen Travel Route

Construction News Image
Plans for a new active travel route in Aberdeenshire are set take shape with the help of the public.

The project, which would run between Kingswells in the city and Westhill in Aberdeenshire, will go under public consultation to deliver an active travel route for walking and cycling between the two communities.

Members of the public are being asked to take part in this initial Placeholder consultation where they can give helpful comments on an interactive map.

Aberdeen City Council transport spokesperson Councillor and Chair of Nestrans Sandra Macdonald said: "This corridor is already well used by cyclists and pedestrians in its current form and we have a great opportunity to create a flagship segregated corridor.


"I'd encourage everyone who lives in the area to take part in the Placecheck consultation to get as much feedback from local people as possible."

Councillor Peter Argyle, chair of Aberdeenshire Council's Infrastructure Services Committee and Vice-Chair of Nestrans, added: "It is hugely-important that we support more people in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to walk and cycle for regular short journeys.

"This new active travel route will not only enable us to improve the health of our residents and create safer communities, but will also help reduce the impacts on our environment."

The options for the new active travel A944 corridor are being considered by Nestrans, the regional transport partnership, with input from Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council.

Those interested in giving feedback on the scheme via the Placeholder consultation can do so here.
