A busy Aberdeen road is to close for eight weeks, sparking concerns over delays.
Countesswells Road will shut from January 16 for around eight weeks.
The closure is to allow for off-site infrastructure works to be completed for the development.
Signed diversion routes will be in place for these closures.
It comes after the Cults to Kingswells road reopened yesterday, having been closed for around four months to allow for work to be done on the major housing development.
The route opened again at 6pm last night.
It was originally scheduled to reopen on December 16.
In a notice to those affected by the closure, W M Donald Ltd, associated with the work, apologies to those who will be disrupted by the closure.
It said: “We understand the road closure impacted greatly on the residents and businesses and we thank you for your patience during the works.”
The 3,000-home Countesswells development, which includes 750 affordable homes, schools, employment land, parks and leisure and healthcare facilities, is to be phased over 15 years and is worth around £1 billion.
Around a quarter of the 17,760,452sq ft site has been earmarked for open space which will include four parks.
There will also be around a mile of new paths, four new bridges over a burn alongside an orchard and an amenity law.
Peter Roberts, planning liaison officer at Cults, Bieldside and Milltimber Community Council, said drivers will face more delays when the busy route is closed next month.
He said: “The Cults to Kingswells Road has been a real nuisance to everyone and a nightmare for those living along it.
“It’s disappointing because they had Countesswells Road closed in the summer.
“I would have hoped this would have been the last of the closures.
“It will be an inconvenience but there is an alternative route to go down – Craigton Road.”
