A GREEN campaigner has called for cycle provision to be included as part of a major improvement of a main road through Aberdeen.
Former councillor Debra Storr said cyclist safety is an “afterthought” of the planned work on the A90 from Aberdeen to Tipperty.
In correspondence to transport body, Nestrans, Ms Storr asked whether proposed new junctions take into account cyclists and pedestrians.
She said new graded junctions near Balmedie and Blackdog were particular areas of concern.
Ms Storr added: “I am disappointed but not surprised that cyclist safety is an afterthought in the planning of the future works on the A90 between Tipperty and Aberdeen.
“I am especially concerned there is no thought of cyclist safety on the new grade-separated junction at Balmedie to the B999 and the village, and at the AWPR junction to Blackdog and Potterton.
“There are regular cyclists on this route and the new grade-separated junctions will make their trips even more hazardous.”
Nestrans said a consultation into cyclists and pedestrians will be commissioned.
