A947 Bucksburn Roundabout to Parkhill Junction Transport Study

Closed 9 Jan 2022

Opened 15 Nov 2021


Aberdeen City Council is carrying out a transport study to investigate problems and opportunities along the A947 corridor between Bucksburn Roundabout and Parkhill Junction, with a particular focus on walking, wheeling, cycling and bus travel.

The main aim of this study is to identify improvement options that will encourage more people to travel sustainably for trips along the corridor (i.e. walking, cycling and using public transport), particularly for regular commuting journeys.

We want to hear from members of the public and key stakeholders to better understand views on the existing transport network along the corridor and what options should be considered to improve the sustainable transport offering.

The study area includes Victoria Street, Riverview Drive, Formartine and Buchan Way as well as the River Don Path and we welcome your views on these areas as well.

A map showing the extents of the study can be seen below:

To facilitate this, an online map-based exercise, PLACECHECK, is offered where the location of specific issues/problems can be highlighted by placing a point at the location and adding the detail of the problem.

This exercise will run until Friday 17th December 2021.

PLACECHECK asks you three questions:

What do we like about a place?

What do we dislike about a place?

What do we need to work on?

To let us know your views using Placecheck, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Click on the 'Placecheck Exercise' link below.
  2. Register (if you have not already done so previously).
  3. Log in – this will make the Placecheck buttons appear.
  4. Click on the button for the marker you would like to add, for example ‘Add something I like’.
  5. Click on the map where you want to make a comment.
  6. Click on ‘Save to map’.
  7. In the box that opens, write the title (e.g. ‘Park Gates’ or ‘Litter’) and under ‘Description’ write what you want to say about it.
  8. Click on ‘Save’.

After completing the PLACECHECK exercise please return to this consultation page where you will have the opportunity to leave comments that are not location-specific but apply to the route as a whole under 'Additional Comments'.

If you add your email address on Page 3 of this consultation, you can get a summary of your ‘Additional Comments’ only - a summary is not available for the PLACECHECK exercise.

Alternatively you may wish to use the Aberdeen City Council email address to send your comments:


Why your views matter

This is a great opportunity to add your views to best reflect the needs and wants of people who use the A947, and we need your help to do this.

We want to understand what you consider to be the main issues currently facing the A947 corridor as well as what you think works well, what needs improved and how you think these improvements could be made.
