Pupils at two primary schools in Aberdeen are to be given the chance to name the city’s new £18 million Third Don Crossing.
Youngsters at Riverbank and Danestone Primary Schools are to choose from a list of names for the project including the Diamond Bridge, Elphinstone Bridge, New Grandholm Bridge and St Machar’s Bridge.
The other names which have been put forward are the Gordon’s Mills Bridge, Marischal Bridge, Third Don, Cruives Bridge and Gordon Bridge.
The most popular suggestion will be ratified at a later Aberdeen City Council committee.
Aberdeen City Council finance, policy and resources vice-convener Councillor Ross Thomson said: “We hope the pupils will have fun learning about the historical aspects to the different names – it was interesting for me to find out more about the local area around the bridge.
“It’s been great to see progress on the bridge and people living and working on both sides of the River Don will see a big difference in getting around their part of the city when it’s opened.
“The bridge project will transform for local residents and visitors getting around Aberdeen, along with commuters travelling in and out of the city on a daily basis.”
The Third Don Crossing will see the construction of a new single carriageway link road between the Parkway/Whitestripes Road junction and the Tillydrone Avenue/St Machar Drive junctions, including the construction of the new bridges.
