Long-awaited plans to improve an Aberdeen street have been delayed again.
A scheme to dual South College Street was first discussed by the council in 2004, with work due to start in 2009 – before work was stopped to change the capital plan.
Officers were then told to build a £5.5 million business case for the scheme in November 2017.
However, other priorities for the council have halted the plans, which were hoped to sit along other traffic relief measures such as the AWPR.
A report to next week’s capital committee reads: “The business case for South College Street has been delayed due to the prioritisation of other schemes.
“The chief officer (for) capital will bring an updated business case to the May 21 2019 committee.”

Concerns have been raised that the cost of the project could rise because of the delays.
Opposition Liberal Democrat infrastructure spokesman Steve Delaney said: “I don’t understand why it has taken two years to present a business case as it had previously been agreed.
“If they had got on with it at the times there would be no question of costs or when it will be finished.”
SNP capital spokesman Alex Nicoll said: “If the administration are serious about improving access to the city centre then the Berryden Corridor and South College Street improvement works should be given the priority they deserve.”
