INVESTIGATIONS are under way to replace an Aberdeen roundabout with a junction and traffic lights.
The Evening Express can today reveal regional transport body Nestrans and Aberdeen City Council are investigating plans to turn the roundabout on South Anderson Drive at Broomhill Road, into a signalised junction.
The initial investigations are part of plans to develop Anderson Drive following the opening of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) which is due for completion in late 2017 – earlier than the previous date of 2018.
The proposals for the roundabout are aimed at making it easier for drivers in areas such as Garthdee and Broomhill to get across Aberdeen as the number of drivers heading north and south reduces due to the AWPR.
Nestrans chairman, Councillor Ramsay Milne, said: “Aberdeen City Council are in the early stages for commissioning a feasibility study for the Broomhill Road roundabout which would investigate the possibility of upgrading to a signalised junction.”
