Cameras have been placed at the western and eastern ends of the central section where only local buses and cycles will be permitted to enter.

Vehicles - other than buses and cycles - will not be allowed to use the central section as a through-route. Taxis will have access to central Union Street via Back Wynd.

The work also means the bus gate on Union Street near Sports Direct which was installed as part of the Spaces for People measures for Covid has been removed.

Motorists will be able to drive again on that bottom section of Union Street turning left down onto Market Street, and from Market Street turning right up onto Union Street.

Aberdeen City Council Co-Leader Councillor Ian Yuill said: "The reopening of the central section on Union Street is to be welcomed.

"We look forward to seeing local service buses use that central section again."
