Con­ges­tion fears as road set to close

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - NEWS -

A ROAD at the con­gested Aberdeen Royal In­fir­mary site is set to close for up to six weeks – spark­ing traf­fic fears. The stretch of pri­vate road off For­rester­hill Road is clos­ing on Wed­nes­day for the in­stal­la­tion of a boiler. It is a part of work on the Forester­hill En­ergy Cen­tre, which will pro­vide re­new­able power to the ARI com­plex. But the long clo­sure has raised fears of traf­fic woes as Forester­hill has long-stand­ing park­ing prob­lems. Rose­mount coun­cil­lor Bill Cormie said: “There has al­ways been a de­gree of con­fu­sion be­cause it is not a coun­cil road.” An NHS Grampian spokes­woman said: “The road which will be clos­ing is the loop road round the pe­riph­ery of the main car park. “Staff and vis­i­tors will still have en­trance and exit ac­cess via For­rester­hill Road. Terry Ma­cleod, of the city coun­cil’s road­works co-or­di­na­tion team said: “An al­ter­na­tive route for ac­cess is avail­able via the north junc­tion with For­rester­hill Road.”
