Aberdeen road shut to cars for lighting works

An Aberdeen road is to close for almost two weeks due to lighting installation works.

Cars will be prohibited from driving on South Loirston Road, between its junctions with Cove Road and Whitehills Close, for 13 days later this month.

The closure will take affect from 5.30am on Monday until 10pm on September 30.

Fraser Bell, head of legal and democratic services at Aberdeen City Council, said: “Access to properties will be maintained, but no through traffic will be possible.

“The measures are necessary to protect public safety during street lighting installation works.”

For motorists looking to travel this route, an alternative way is available via Cove Road, Earnsheugh Road, Langdykes Road, Wellington Road, Charleston Road North, travelling on to Langdykes Avenue and then on to Whitehills Close.

Cars will also not be able to drive on the Chapel of Stoneywood-Fairley Road at the end of this month.

The road will be shut between its junctions with Kingswood Drive and Fairley Road between 5.30am on September 25 and 10pm on September 28, as carriageway resurfacing works are carried out.

There will be diversions in place for motorists who need to use the road as part of their route.
