Part of a busy Aberdeen road is to be shut for five days this month to allow for water works to be carried out.

Scottish Water will close Ruthrieston Road, at the junction with Holburn Street, starting at 7pm on November 27.

The order has been put in place to ensure the safety of members of the public while the work is done.

The closure will cover an area 10 metres of Ruthrieston Road from the junction, and will reopen at 6.30am the next day.

A prohibition of waiting will also be in place on the west side of Holburn Street between the junction with Ruthrieston Road and number 622 Holburn Street, starting on November 27 at 3pm until 6.30am the following day.

According to a post on the Aberdeen City Council website, a prohibition of waiting order has also been posted on both sides of Holburn Street between the Garthdee Roundabout and Ruthrieston Road from 3pm to 6.30am every night between November 28 and December 1.

Any cars that are parked illegally during the time that the order is in effect will be removed at the expense of the owners.

The council website has suggested a potential alternative route, taking Ruthrieston Place, Ruthrieston Circle and Ruthrieston Crescent.
