However, tens of thousands of drivers have been caught out, while closed down businesses have blamed bus gates for decreasing footfall.

The six month consultation by Aberdeen City Council on the changes is due to close on Tuesday, January 23.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce is repeating a survey on the impact of the road changes to check to what extent the impacts predicted have held true, and what the current opinions and likely future impacts may be if the changes remain permanently.
