    Description
    Objectives

    The AWPR/B-T project involves the construction of about 58km of new dual carriageway. The project is almost exclusively greenfield. It includes the construction of 12 new intersections, extensive drainage, earthworks and pavement works, as well as the construction of over 150 structures (including two significant river crossings). The project will also accommodate a number of intelligent transport system elements.

    AWPR/B-T aims at (i) relieving congestion and (ii) improving safety in the road networks in and around Aberdeen.
