   Key aims of the study are to identify options that:

  • Increase the modal share of walking on the A947 corridor for all journey types;
  • Increase the modal share of cycling on the A947 corridor for all journey types;
  • Increase the modal share of public transport on the A947 corridor for all journey types;
  • Increase east-west connectivity within Dyce to enhance walkability within the local area and promote improved accessibility for local movements;
  • Improve accessibility to the key transport hubs of Dyce Rail Station, Aberdeen Airport and Craibstone Park and Ride and key destinations including TECA by non-car modes;
  • Ensure the main routes through the Study Area function in accordance with their role in the revised Roads Hierarchy.

This study is part of a series of ongoing multi-modal corridor studies across Aberdeen, some funded through Transport Scotland's Bus Partnership Fund (BPF).

The other ongoing studies, which are at different stages in their development are:

  • A90 Ellon Park and Ride to Garthdee Transport Corridor Study (funded through BPF).
  • A944/A9119 Westhill to Aberdeen Multi-Modal Corridor Study (funded through BPF).
  • A96 Inverurie to Aberdeen Multi-Modal Transport Study (funded through BPF).
  • A92 Bridge of Don to Bridge of Dee Multi-Modal Transport Study (funded through BPF)
  • A92 Stonehaven to Aberdeen Transport Study (funded through Local Rail Development Fund).
  • A93 Banchory to Aberdeen Multi-Modal Corridor Study.
