The managers of a country club were left “extremely frustrated” after Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route work resulted in lengthy diversions for members and staff.
A section of North Deeside Road was shut to allow contractors to carry out surfacing work on the bypass project, to the west of the new North Deeside Road bridge.
Diversions were put in place for those seeking to travel west towards Culter, but the management of Kippie Lodge say they were told access to the country club would still be possible through the new slip road at Milltimber Brae.
However, for the duration of the weekend, the route was closed, which meant staff and members travelling from east of the lodge were forced to enter through the back gate and take a long diversion via Malcolm Road in Culter.
Kippie Lodge said there was “significant traffic disruption” resulting in limited access to and from Kippie.
A Transport Scotland spokesman said the contractor consulted the club and local residents about work, but was unaware of any agreement to open part of the new Milltimber Brae to alleviate issues during the closure of the A93.
