Council asks for views on ‘missing’ cycling link in Aberdeen

The link is between the existing cycleway on Wellheads Drive and Dyce train station

An online exhibition has started to find out people’s views on a proposed design for a ‘missing’ cycling link between the existing cycleway on Wellheads Drive and Dyce train station in Aberdeen.

The new shared section would be encouraging people to cycle or walk in the area and particularly to and from Dyce railway station, Aberdeen International Airport, Victoria Street in Dyce, and industrial and business premises in Wellheads Industrial Estate.

The new link will extend the existing shared cycleway along Wellheads Drive to link in with Farburn Terrace at the roundabout, and will create a shared cycleway around the roundabout, along Farburn Terrace (east) to Victoria Street and Farburn Terrace northwards towards the railway station.

The online exhibition and survey of the proposed design closes on 28th January.

Aberdeen City Council transportation spokesman councillor Ross Grant said: “This is one of several cycling schemes which have been made public recently by Aberdeen City Council and I hope people who live or work in the Dyce area will take time out of a short part of their day to look and comment on the designs.

“I’d encourage as many people as possible to look at the proposed design and give feedback on it.”

Funding was secured by Aberdeen City Council from Sustrans and Nestrans to develop the detailed design for the shared cycleway.

The section is part of the city’s Active Travel Action Plan designed to improve cycling and walking facilities and routes.
