SPEED limits on two commuter routes are to be lowered for up to six months as part of works for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR).
Aberdeenshire Council today confirmed a section of the B999 Tarves road, between Potterton and Bridge of Don, is to have its speed limit reduced from 60mph to 40mph.
The section of road which see a reduced limit will be between the entrance to Potterton at Panmure Gardens and its junction with the Newton of Shielhill road outside Bridge of Don.
It comes just a week after it was revealed temporary traffic lights and lane restrictions will be in place on the A93 North Deeside Road at Milltimber until July.
Meanwhile, Aberdeen City Council today confirmed a 30mph speed restriction is expected to remain on the Chapel of Stoneywood to Fairley Road for the next six months.
The restriction is part of works to reconstruct the road, form a new entrance and divert a water main at the area’s Prime Four development as part of work for the AWPR.
An Aberdeen City Council spokesman said: “The 30-mph speed restriction will be removed from the Prime Four section immediately on completion of the works.”
