The final section of the AWPR has opened – meaning the full route is now open to traffic.
The new 4.5-mile (7.5km) section, which opened in the early hours of the morning, will link the southern Craibstone to Stonehaven and Charleston section with the Parkhill to Blackdog section in the north, slashing journey times.
Please drive carefully whilst getting used to the new layout and consider other road users 🚗
