Lagan lands ‘crucial’ job

Lagan Construction Group expects to begin work in the spring on a “crucial” £15.2m project for a 1,000-space park-and-ride facility and dual carriageway link road on the A96 in Dyce.

The job was awarded by Aberdeen City Council and is part of a series of infrastructure improvements to ease the city’s traffic congestion.

Work will be in three phases:

• The northern leg of the dual carriageway, to be completed towards the end of 2015 and opening up development opportunities on neighbouring land

• The southern leg, linking to a planned new roundabout on the A96 in association with the AWPR, will then be completed

• The park-and-ride site, due to become operational by summer 2016

City council leader Jenny Laing described the project as a “crucial piece of major infrastructure” and one of the largest roads contracts signed by the local authority in recent times. She added: “Together with the AWPR, the Third Don Crossing and our Berryden Corridor and Access from the South proposals, this latest project is part of a suite of schemes which will make a real difference to journey times.”
