City bypass report being drawn up

The bypass plan was being assessed at the public inquiry

A report to ministers is being drawn up following a three-month public local inquiry into the Aberdeen bypass plans.

The inquiry began on 9 September, when there was a protest, and since then evidence has been heard both for and against the route.

The Scottish Government said the probe was needed due to the public response.

The bypass is aimed at easing traffic and improving business. Opponents have criticised the cost and the environmental impact of the plans.
