Council representatives are to go door-to-door to address concerns relating to the upgrade of a major Aberdeen road.
More than 60 householders in the city’s Berryden area have contacted the council about the proposed £22 million Berryden Corridor Improvement Scheme.
It comes after 500 letters were sent to people who live along the route warning them they could be affected by the plans.
The project will see the existing road widened to a dual carriageway with junction improvements from Skene Square to Ashgrove Road and a new dual carriageway built from Ashgrove Road to St Machar Drive roundabout.
And city council transport and regeneration spokesman Councillor Ross Grant today encouraged more people to come forward if they have concerns about the impact the project could have on their home.
He said: “We are glad people have got in touch with us and hopefully we can give them information and allay some fears.
“The scheme will make a big difference, helping to improve the transport across the whole of the city as part of our strategic infrastructure plan, and will link in with the Denburn underpass and the Third Don Crossing.”
Despite the final detailed designs for the corridor not being approved, it’s expected the scheme will involve the purchase of between two and eight buildings, some of which are flats, while between 15 and 20 gardens could also be affected.
Any householder in the area wishing to discuss road design or construction inquiries is asked to speak to the council’s roads team.
Compensation and land acquisition inquiries should be directed to the local authority’s estates team.
