|Route outline (key)|
The A943, a medium-length road in north Kincardineshire, is one of many A roads in this area to bite the dust. It ran along the south side of the River Dee, and linked Banchory with the A92 (now A90) at Bridge of Dee in Aberdeen.
It seems that the A943 was downgraded in the 1970s with the opening up of the Durris Bridge to through traffic, allowing A957 traffic to cross the Dee without having to enter Banchory.
