Route outline (key)
B982 Marywell - Aberdeen
Wellington Road: today the A956; once the B982

In 1923 the number B982 was allocated to the route from Marywell north to Aberdeen via Wellington Road. The number was very short-lived as on 16 May 1924 this was reclassified as the A956, and unusually the number has not been reused. The route has retained this latter number, although the two ends have since been bypassed and downgraded.

The route originally started at the southern end of Wellington Road at a fork junction with the A92, Old Stonehaven Road. The first 100m or so have been bypassed, but remain as property access. The B982 then headed north east along the almost dead straight Wellington Road to meet the current dualled line of the A956 just south of Loirston Loch. At the northern end, the B982 did not cross the Wellington Bridge, but instead stayed on the south bank of the Dee, following South Esplanade West to the Victoria Bridge Junction, where it turned north to cross the Dee and end on the A945 to the south of the docks.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Marywell - Aberdeen
