A947 Multi-Modal Corridor Study Consultation

Closed 14 Jun 2024

Opened 20 May 2024


Following on from an initial Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG) based appraisal of options for improving transport connections, in particular public transport and active travel (walking, wheeling and cycling), carried out in 2022,  Aberdeen City Council has now progressed to a detailed appraisal of options and an Outline Business Case STAG appraisal for the A947 Dyce corridor between Bucksburn Roundabout and Parkhill Junction.

Please find below a map of the study corridor.




   Key aims of the study are to identify options that will help to:

  • Increase the number of walking and wheeling trips in the study area by 20% within 5 years of project delivery (against a 2024 baseline). 
  • Increase the number of cycling trips in the study area by 20% within 5 years of project delivery (against a 2024 baseline). 

This study is part of a series of ongoing multi-modal corridor studies across Aberdeen, in partnership with Nestrans.

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

  • A90 Ellon Park and Ride to Garthdee Transport Corridor Study.
  • A944/A9119 Westhill to Aberdeen Multi-Modal Corridor Study. 
  • A96 Inverurie to Aberdeen Multi-Modal Transport Study. 
  • A93 Banchory to Aberdeen Multi-Modal Corridor Study.



Why your views matter

We are consulting to gain your views and feedback on the options that have been developed to improve travel on the corridor.

An online survey has been set up to provide more information about the option concepts that have been developed as part of the study. The A947 Transport Study Survey is available to view at the link below. 

We are also holding an in-person consultation event in The Craighaar Hotel on 06 June 2024 (Further details are provided in the link below)

We therefore invite you to give us your views using the link below, or by coming along to the in-person consultation. If you have further questions or comments, please contact:


What happens next

The results of this consultation will be used to finalise the
appraisal of the five option packages. This will help to finalise
what is put forward in an Outline Business Case (OBC) for the
study corridor. The OBC will then be presented at a future
Council committee to agree the next steps for progressing
transport interventions in the A947 study area.
