Aberdeen active travel drive to remodel key Forresterhill route
June 24 2022
Aberdeen City Council and transport body Nestrans have opened a second consultation for public realm improvements to Ashgrove Road.
Ashgrove Connects will encourage active travel along the key route through the University of Aberdeen's Forresterhill campus through a range of infrastructure works such as traffic calming measures, rationalised crossings and more green space.
Councillor Miranda Radley said: “I’m looking forward to the consultation on these exciting designs which have been developed based on local feedback. There has been a fantastic response from the local community so far on the project and this next stage is an excellent opportunity to shape this project even further.”
Public feedback is invited by 17 July to select a preferred design for the planned work which includes options to form a signalled junction to Westburn Drive with segregated cycle lanes.
An alternative proposal would see a roundabout built that prioritises walkers and cyclists over traffic - a relatively new concept for the UK.
Initial designs have been prepared by Atkins and will connect to the proposed Berryden Corridor work that is to be delivered in tandem.
Alternatively a roundabout could be delivered which would take up more land but minimise delays to traffic
Options under consideration include a signalled junction with widened footpaths and a dedicated cycle lane
