Traffic order Three

Description : The first order, from 5.00am on Friday, 28 August 2014, until 10.00pm on Sunday, 31 August 2014, allows for the closure of Union Terrace between Union Street and Rosemount Viaduct. Also during these times, Diamond Place will be closed between Union Terrace and Diamond Street, as will the slip road between Union Terrace and Rosemount Viaduct. From 08:00 until 19:00 on 30 August, 2014, Rosemount Viaduct / Denburn Viaduct will be closed between their junctions with Blackfriars Street and Union Terrace. The second order comes into operation at 5pm on Thursday, 27 August 2014 until 9pm on Sunday, 31 August 2014. The effect of this order is to suspend existing pay and display arrangements and overnight parking restrictions on certain lengths of Beach Boulevard, Aberdeen. The lengths will be on the north side for approximately 140 metres or thereby, between the Beach Boulevards junction with Wales Street, and on the south side from its junction with Hanover Street to directly opposite its exit junction with Wales Street. This is to allow those kerbsides to be used for the parking of vendors’ vehicles (vehicles which cannot be accommodated at the location of the International Street Market itself, and therefore have to be catered for elsewhere, reasonably close to Union Terrace). However, any vendors’ vehicle so parked must display an “International Market Vendors’ Permit” issued by the Council in order to be entitled to be parked there. Also by virtue of this order – but beginning at 5.00am on 29 August (until 10.00pm on 31 August 2014) – the prohibition of right turns from Skene Street into Rosemount Viaduct will be suspended for buses only. From 08:00 until 19:00 on 30 August, 2014, the prohibition on right turns from Rosemount Viaduct into Skene Street shall be temporarily suspended. This is to accommodate the next international street market on Union Terrace and also the Celebrate Aberdeen event on Rosemount Viaduct. 

Alternate Route : A diversion route would be available via Union Street/ Broad Street/ Upperkirkgate/ Schoolhill.An alternative route is available via Blackfriars Street, St. Andrews Street, Charlotte Street, John Street, Woolmanhill Roundabout and Skene Street.
