City leaders today hailed the start of works upgrading a section of Aberdeen’s main thoroughfare of Union Street as a major milestone to revitalising the Granite Mile – the biggest change to the street since it was built more than 200 years ago.

The works to the Union Street Central area - between the Market Street and Bridge Street junctions – will make it more attractive and vibrant while promoting walking and cycling as part of the City Centre and Beach Masterplan. The works include new pavements of Scottish whinstone, a road surface with locally-sourced granite, cycle lanes, and will help to create a plaza pavement entrance to the new market building.
