Physical Distancing Measures

Closed 31 Dec 2020

Opened 11 Jun 2020


Aberdeen City Council is making changes to a number of roads and pavements throughout the city to give people space to move around safely as Covid-19 (coronavirus) lockdown restrictions are eased and more shops and services start to re-open.

This is in response to current advice from the NHS that people should keep a 2-metre distance from others at all times to reduce the risk of further infection.

Many of these changes have had to be delivered quickly with temporary materials and they are subject to ongoing review to ensure that they are the correct measures and are having a positive impact.

Why your views matter

The main purpose of this questionnaire is to seek feedback on these changes, particularly in terms of what you think works well and doesn’t work well, as well as areas where you think further interventions may be needed.

In the second page of the questionnaire there are some optional questions about how the pandemic has changed or is likely to change your travel behaviour.

The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete.
