Around £500,000 of improvements are in the pipeline for an Aberdeen road where a cyclist was seriously injured.
Calls were made for action to be taken on the unclassified Shielhill road which connects the B999 Potterton Road and B997 Scotstown Road, near Bridge of Don.
They came after a 56-year-old cyclist was injured in a collision with a car.
Aberdeen City Council will carry out a range of works that will include the realignment of the road between Shielhill farm and the junction with the B999.
The junction will also be realigned to make it safer for traffic, and white lines will be painted on the route.
Cllr John Reynolds, who represents the area, said he was working with officers to ensure the works were a priority.
He said: “The junction is a really, really dangerous bit to get out of.
“The land is not owned by the council and there are problems with vegetation growth, so you can’t always see to get out.
“There will also be improvements to cycle routes in the area.”
He added: “Improving it will certainly give a better chance of not risking life and limb.”
The cash for the works has been raised through developer contributions from nearby housing developments.
Cllr Reynolds said the improvements would be carried after officers had completed works to the A96 park and ride at Dyce.
He added: “I see this as a priority not just for my area but from a safety point of view.
“I don’t want my constituents getting injured or killed and will be pushing heavily for improvements to be carried out as soon as possible.”
Roy Milne, chairman of Deeside Thistle Cycling Club, also called upon the council and Police Scotland to take steps to make the road safer, following last Saturday’s crash.
The local authority confirmed there were long-term plans to transform the road network in Aberdeen.
