Route

Denburn Road in Aberdeen

The B986 starts in Aberdeen City Centre and heads north then west, paralleling the A96.

Starting on the B983 Rosemount Viaduct it follows Skene Street to a roundabout where turns left and follows Skene Square to reach the A944. Crossing directly into Berryden Road it then turns into Belmont Road to meet the A96 at traffic lights. After a short multiplex northwards, the two routes diverge again on the same side they met, with the B986 continuing north then west along Clifton Road to terminate at a LILO on the A92.

The dual carriageway of Denburn Road running from the Skene Square roundabout under the Trinity Centre to the A93 gyratory on Wapping Street is also marked as the B986 on some maps, but whether this is still part of the route is not certain.

History

The route of the B986 has changed quite a bit since it was first classified in 1922. Indeed, the only original section seems to be Berryden Road and Belmont Road. It is difficult to know when the changes took place, as few maps show numbers for the smaller B roads in city centres, but the original 1922 route is as follows:

Starting on the A92 (now A9013) Union Street, the B986 headed north along Rose Street, now the B985. It continued along Esslemont Avenue and Watson Street to Westburn Road, now the A944, where it headed east to Berryden Road, and so picked up its current route, terminating on the A96, Powis Terrace.
