Union Street could get a professional deep clean as part of a proposed £2 million package of city centre improvements, the Evening Express can reveal.
Proposals have been brought forward under Aberdeen City Council’s city centre masterplan to regenerate Union Street.
The list of measures put forward include deep cleaning, the repositioning and upgrading of street furniture and the creation of a specialist team to keep the area in top condition.
The deep clean of Union Street would include a power wash of pavements, pedestrian areas and street furniture, as well as doorways.
Proposals also include the resurfacing of the south pavement on Union Bridge, upgrading, removing and painting street furniture, bollards, railings and benches.
While a professional clean of the facade of St Nicholas Kirkyard and the painting of all railings and gates has also been put forward.
A dedicated team could also be set up to clean, fix and paint any fixtures which fall into a poor state.
A total of two pavement scrubber machines and four additional street sweepers would also be allocated under the plans.
In addition, a survey would be carried out into the condition of buildings on Union Street with a building standards officer appointed for a year.
If approved, the Union Street programme is expected to get under way in the next few months.
