A group of eyesore buildings are to be demolished as part of Aberdeen’s Berryden Corridor improvement scheme.
The demolition, asbestos removal and site works are to take place at 78 and 86-90 Powis Terrace ahead of the project, which is designed to help traffic move around the city better.
The works will comprise of the removal and disposal of asbestos.
The demolition will include its lower ground floor being knocked down as well as its concrete retaining walls.
While underground fuel tanks and inspection pits will be dismantled.
Security fencing will be put in place during the demolition. Work is expected to start next month as part of the corridor scheme.
The £26.4 million upgrade would see the existing road widened to a dual carriageway from Skene Square to St Machar Drive roundabout.
Junction improvements will also be made on the route.
Aberdeen City Council leader Jenny Laing said the demolition of the buildings highlights the project will become a reality after years in the pipeline.
She said: “This is another development in the £26.4m Berryden Corridor improvement scheme and I’m sure residents will welcome the demolition of these buildings.
“The Berryden Corridor improvement scheme will benefit motorists, cyclists and pedestrians and will be a major upgrade to the roads network in the area and for the whole of the city.
“It will also help the delivery of other infrastructure routes and will mean a better journey through the city and further supports wider network policies such as the City Centre Masterplan.”
The work comes after a preferred option for the key Caroline Place junction was approved by councillors last month.
