Plans for third River Don crossing backed

Plans for a third crossing over the River Don in Aberdeen have moved forward.

Councillors on the enterprise, planning and infrastructure committee agreed to start design work on a bridge linking Tillydrone and Grandholm.

A Labour motion to rethink the proposal was rejected, with councillor Willie Young among those opposing the plans.

Proposals for pedestrian, cycling and public transport measures were also supported.

The aim is to improve access to the north of the city.
