Following months of consultation with the local community and working closely with the Council’s roads department a programme of works has now been agreed in a bid to minimise disruption for motorists as work is carried out over a number of months on and around the A944 Skene Road.
This programme will see the widening of the A944 east and westbound with additional access lanes to Prime Four and the existing Kingswells roundabout realigned prior to completion of Phase 1.
Director of Enterprise, Planning and Infrastructure Gordon McIntosh said:
“This is a very exciting time for Aberdeen. Once complete this development will play a central role in Aberdeen’s economic success.
With a development of this nature, the level of investment and attention to detail in the Prime Four plan will bring not just investment but improvements to the local community, which will help maintain Aberdeen’s status as Europe’s energy capital.
The developers Drum Property Group have worked very closely with Aberdeen City Council every step of the way to ensure this development is in keeping with our Local Development Plan as well as carrying out lengthy consultation in the local community to make sure they are involved in the process.
This is a major investment and commitment to the city, one which could generate hundreds of jobs and millions of pounds of annual investment every year.”
