Work to repair a 19th-century bridge is to begin later this month – and will last half a year.
Essential maintenance of the Rob Roy Bridge in Peterculter will cost around £530,000 and see the A93 closed to traffic at certain times.
Aberdeen City Council says the work is crucial to safeguard the future of the bridge and will last around 26 weeks, starting from June 27.
Part of the work will see the demolition of the reinforced concrete section of the bridge, which will be rebuilt to modern standards.
Throughout the work, traffic lights will be in operation with road closures at the weekends.
Neil Cooney, Aberdeen City Council communities, housing and infrastructure convener, said: “Rob Roy Bridge forms part of the adopted road network and has long been identified as a structure requiring significant remedial works.
“We are coordinating the work along with the programme of works for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) in order to keep disruption to the travelling public to a minimum, with the structure restricted to a single lane with traffic lights for most of the works.
“It was deemed to cause less disruption to have the works carried out at the same time, rather than wait until after the AWPR is finished.
“Due to the complex nature of the work and that it is a very restricted site, it will be necessary to have complete closures at times and the intention is to limit these to weekends. We appreciate people’s patience while the works are being carried out.”
