An Aberdeen road has been closed to all vehicles except buses today to allow work to start on creating a bus gate.
Bedford Road near Kittybrewster Retail Park closed at about 8.30am this morning to allow the installation of a bus gate.
Drivers were seen having to turn back and head in a different direction due to the closure.
Only buses will be able to access the road during the works which are expected to be completed on Monday, June 6.
Bedford Road is to remain closed permanently as a through route to all traffic except buses, pedestrians and cyclists.
The closure of Bedford Road is part of traffic management plans relating to the new Third Don Crossing and Berryden Corridor.
