Plans to partially pedestrianise a historic Aberdeen street could take a step forward next week.
Around £4 million will be spent on the Broad Street scheme, which will include a new roundabout at Upperkirkgate, a water feature, public lawn and boulevard of trees.
Under the plan, Broad Street will be open exclusively for buses and bikes between its junctions with the Gallowgate/Upperkirkgate and Queen Street.
The proposed traffic order was put out for public consultation for a period of 28 days and was subject to a single objection from a Mr Brian Strachan.
He said he objected to the restrictions and said it would allow a private bus company to have “exclusive use” whereas private hire cars/taxis would be prohibited.
Officers are urging councillors to overrule the objection and approve the traffic order at a meeting of the communities, housing and infrastructure committee on Tuesday.
