Please note that CCTV will be in operation on Westburn Road and Hutcheon Street on Thursday 16 February 2023.
In order to encourage people to make more walking journeys between Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the City Centre, Aberdeen City Council are installing a number of benches on Westburn Road and Hutcheon Street. Given how hilly this corridor is, these will provide useful resting places for pedestrians, especially those who may have been discouraged from walking between the hospital and the City Centre previously. The benches will be procured by the Council using external funding from the Scottish Government’s Cycle Walking Safer Routes (CWSR) funding. To establish whether the benches are encouraging more walking to take place it is necessary to undertake monitoring of walking levels on the corridor.
