The Project

About the project

One of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe, the new route will span 36 miles (58km) of the north east of Scotland. That’s the equivalent of building a new road between Edinburgh and Glasgow in just four years!

This truly amazing infrastructure project also includes: 25 miles (40km) of new side roads; 19 miles (30km) of access track; 12 junctions; two river major crossings – at Dee and Don; a bridge for the Aberdeen to Inverness Railway; and three wildlife bridges; with more than 100 other structures also built for local road traffic and pedestrians.
