AWPR - Chapel of Stoneywood to Fairley Road (C89C) to close this weekend

The C89C Chapel of Stoneywood to Fairley Road is expected to close from 8pm on Friday 25 August until 6am on Monday 28 August, as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project.
The closure, between the C88C Newhills Road and Kingswells Crescent, will enable the contractor to undertake surfacing works at Dykeside Roundabout.

Diversions will be sign-posted. Road users intending to proceed north beyond the closure should travel east via the A944 Skene Road and A944 Lang Stracht. They should then join the A90 North Anderson Drive and continue their journey along A96 Auchmill Road, Inverurie Road and the C88C Kepplehills Road, re-joining the C89C north of the closure.

The reverse journey should be used for those intending to head south.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“This coming weekend will see the temporary closure of the C89C Chapel of Stoneywood to Fairley Road between the C88C Newhills Road and Kingswells Crescent.

“This road is a well-used commuter route and the contractor has timed this closure to take place over a weekend to minimise the impact it may have on road users. However, we would like to encourage those drivers who would consider using this route at weekends to plan their journey in advance. They should also give themselves additional travelling time so that they can reach their destination safely and on time.

"We thank road users and the local community in advance for their patience during this period."
When complete, the AWPR/B-T will help to reduce congestion, cut journey times, improve safety and lower pollution in Aberdeen City Centre. It will also enable local authorities to develop public transport solutions.
