Deeside Way to be upgraded between Murtle and Peterculter
The Deeside Way is one of the City’s most important active travel routes.
Since the spring of 2006, increasing numbers of cyclists in the City
have benefited from the upgrade of the majority of the route to
tarmac and from the erection of a new bridge over West Cults Road.
Aberdeen City Council plans to complete the upgrade this year by
replacing the remaining dust surface between Murtle and Culter
Station with tarmac.
Between Murtle and Peterculter the surface quality is very variable and in places muddy
and not up to a standard suitable for what is now a key corridor for
active travel. The tarmac has been a great success elsewhere and
this work will enable cyclists to use the route all year round.
Works are expected to be completed during the winter. Some short
term diversions may be in force to enable works – please follow guidance signage.
