CCTV for second set of pedestrian counts on Westburn Road/Hutcheon Street

Lucy Johnston2023, News

Please note that CCTV will be in operation on Westburn Road and Hutcheon Street on Thursday 15 June 2023.

In order to encourage people to make more walking journeys between Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the City Centre, Aberdeen City Council have installed a number of benches on Westburn Road and Hutcheon Street. Given how hilly this corridor is, these now 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 have been funded by the Scottish Government’s Cycle Walking Safer Routes (CWSR) fund. To establish whether the benches are encouraging more walking to take place it is necessary to undertake monitoring of walking levels on the corridor. This count will be the second of three counts in total.
