A programme of works has been mapped out for a transformational project in Aberdeen city centre. 

Union Terrace Gardens (UTG) is undergoing a £25.7 million regeneration under Aberdeen City Council’s City Centre Masterplan. 

Contractor Balfour Beatty will take possession of the site on 9 September and anticipates a six-week period of set-up, including erecting hoardings around the perimeter. 

Key project features include elevated walkways, new pavilions, events space, play facilities, and extensive planting to increase biodiversity within the Victorian park.   

The first stage of construction work will involve foundation piling and adding a permanent safety barrier to Union Bridge.  

During 2020 the programme will focus on strengthening of the balustrades, the renovation and refurbishment of the arches, and the widening of the pavement along Union Terrace.  

The Council is committed to maintaining a safe environment within the footprint of the Gardens and the immediate surrounding area for both contractors and the general public.  

At various points during the programme there will be a need to extend protective hoardings and other safety measures on to public footways and highways. 

The Council will work with its partners to ensure a high standard of safety is implemented while exploring ways to keep any impact on pedestrian and vehicular traffic to a minimum.   

The pavilions are expected to be completed in Spring 2021 followed by lighting and landscaping ahead of the planned reopening of UTG that summer.
