Plans for pedestrian zones in Aberdeen city centre
Castlegate could be reopened to traffic under proposals
ABERDEEN’S Union Street could be pedestrianised under bold new regeneration plans, the Evening Express can reveal today.
Aberdeen City Council is looking at banning cars from the middle section – but retaining access for buses if bosses cut fares.
The council is also considering the full pedestrianisation of part of Broad Street and reopening the Castlegate to through traffic in a plan estimated to cost around £10 million.
Finance convener Willie Young said: “Over a five-year period we promised to make big changes – and I think these changes would be to people’s liking.”
