Court backs Aberdeen Bypass

19 October 2012 The UK’s Supreme Court has given the go-ahead to the planned Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.
It means plans for the new road, which will provide access to key locations in the city and also includes upgrade work to the A90 Balmedie to Tipperty route, can now commence and a tender is expected to be issued shortly.

The project was first launched by the Scottish government in 2009 but has been delayed by the legal challenges.

“We will be working closely with our partners in the scheme, Aberdeenshire Council and the Scottish government, to move as fast as we can to get construction underway,” said Aberdeen City Council Leader, Barney Crockett.

The £450m bypass was included in the Scottish Futures Trust’s recent update of its pipeline.
