Lagan Construction has been picked for a £15M project in Aberdeen to create a park-and-ride site on the A96 and a new dual carriageway link road.
Aberdeen City Council is client for the scheme in Dyce.
It will involve the creation of a park-and-ride site with around 1,000 parking spaces, cycle lockers, and 500 metres of new dual carriageway between the A96 and Dyce Drive (see map). The dual carriageway will comprise three lanes in each direction.
Work is scheduled to begin this spring on the three-phase project, which has the following programme:
- The northern leg of the new dual carriageway, between the Dyce Drive/Argyll Road junction and half-way towards the park-and-ride site, should be completed towards the end of 2015.
- The southern leg of the dual carriageway, linking to a planned new roundabout on the A96 and the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route, will then be completed.
- The park-and-ride site will be completed and operational by summer 2016.
The scheme is designed to relieve pressure on the busy A96 corridor and the Haudagain roundabout by boosting the use of public transport. It will also improve access to Aberdeen International Airport.
