A worker at Balfour Beatty’s Third Don Crossing construction project in Aberdeen died yesterday afternoon.
A police spokeswoman said they were called to the site at 4.45pm yesterday, following a report that a man had been injured. Sadly, on arrival they found he had died. The man was in his 50s and from the Dundee area. His family have been informed.
A Balfour Beatty spokesperson said: “Yesterday afternoon, a colleague working on the Third Don Crossing construction project in Aberdeen died.
“Our deepest sympathies are with our colleague’s family, friends and co-workers at this time.
“We are liaising with Police Scotland and the Health & Safety Executive to support their investigations and while these continue it would not be appropriate to comment further.”
An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “We offer our deepest condolences to the family. We are working with the police and HSE to establish what happened and so cannot comment any further.”
Work on the £18M third River Don crossing started in 2014 and is in its final stages.
