Thousands of people will be invited to party on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) next month.
The Go North East Road campaign, set up by Transport Scotland, will host a special community weekend on September 8 and 9.
It will see 12,000 people invited to enjoy a “carnival atmosphere” and see the new road for themselves.
The event, which will take place on the bypass, close to the River Dee, will invite the public to walk and cycle on the bypass before pedestrians and cyclists are banned from the AWPR when it opens.
Revellers will also be able to sample local food and drink, listen to regional musicians and see “travel-themed demos, art and information villages” highlighting how the AWPR will change the north-east.
