Aberdeen street market to close city centre road

Thistle Street in Aberdeen city centre

A city centre road is to close for a street market this weekend.

Cars will be stopped from driving on Thistle Street between Rose Street and Chapel Street for the Thistle Street Food Market.

The traffic order from Aberdeen City Council starts at 6am Saturday until 8pm.

Fraser Bell, head of legal and democratic services, said: “From 6am until 8pm on Saturday, there will be a temporary prohibition of driving on Thistle Street, between its junctions with Rose Street and Chapel Street.

“The measure is necessary to protect public safety during a street market. A diversion is available via Rose Street, Huntly Street and Chapel Street.”
