Contraflow for the Esplanade during road surface repair works

A contraflow is to be put in place from 6pm on Sunday (21 May) on the Esplanade while road surface repair works take place next week.

The contraflow is to be in place during the entire works, which are due to finish by midnight on 29 May, and affect the road between its junctions with the Beach Boulevard and the access road into the Links Ice Arena car park.

There will also be a suspension of waiting on either side of the same stretch of road. Links Road, Aberdeen will be closed between its north junction with Esplanade and the access road into the Links Ice Arena car park.

Accommodation Road will also be closed between its junctions with Esplanade and a point 190 metres south of this junction, for a short time during the works. The existing width restriction on the Esplanade will be suspended for the duration of this order.

An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “The restrictions are in place in the interests of public safety during road surface repair works including patching works.”

An alternative route for the Esplanade is available via Esplanade, East North Street, Park Street, Park Road, Accommodation Road and Esplanade. An alternative route for Links Road is available via Links Road southbound.

An alternative route for Accommodation Road is available via Park Road, Urquhart Road, Links Road and Esplanade.
