The central stretch of Union Street will soon close for the rest of the year.

The measures will be put in place as work on a multi-million-pound revamp of the Granite Mile begins.

The £100 million road overhaul also includes upgrading parts of Rose Street, Thistle Street and Chapel Street up the other end of Aberdeen city centre.

The first batch of upgrades will be carried out on the stretch between Market Street and Bridge Street.

It is expected this part of Union Street, which is already restricted to buses and taxis, will be closed for at least seven months.

The same section was shut off completely during the pandemic.

When exactly workers will swoop in is still to be confirmed, but it’s expected to start in the coming weeks.
