Plans have been lodged for a permanent safety barrier on Aberdeen’s Union Bridge.
Temporary fencing has been in place in front of the bridge parapets on Union Street.
The application was submitted by LDA Design, which was commissioned by Aberdeen City Council to draw up the plans.
The proposed barrier would be made from steel and powder coated in a copper colour, and would be a lighter structure to complement the existing parapet.
In the application it states the design aims to respect the heritage value of the bridge while blending with the proposal to revamp Union Terrace Gardens, also produced by LDA Design.
