AWPR - daytime weekend closures for Pitmedden Road

The C55C Pitmedden Road in Dyce is expected to close between 7am and 8pm on Saturday 12 May and Sunday 13 to enable finishing works to be undertaken on a new bridge, as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie to Tipperty (AWPR/B-T) project.

Diversions will be sign-posted. Road users intending to travel north on Pitmedden Road should travel via Dyce Drive and the Airport Link Road to the A96 Inverurie Road, B973 Main Road and B979 through Blackburn, and the U58C Caskieben Road. The reverse journey should be taken for those intending to travel south.

Access to properties will be maintained. There will be no through access.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“The contractor is aware that this road is a well-used route to and from the airport and these closures have been timed to take place when the road is usually quieter.
“We would like to encourage those drivers who would consider using this route at weekends, especially those who need to access the airport, 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."
