Illegal 20 limit sign in Aberdeen? Light blue ring instead of a red one.

A956 Wellington Road Dualling - Coppermine - 2184.jpg
A956 Wellington Road Dualling

A new dual carriageway is finally getting constructed here in an attempt to end the jams on approach to the A90. Eventually this will run all the way from the Altens roundabout to the existing section of dual carriageway at the junction with the A90.

A9013 Holburn Street

Looking west from the junction where A92 heavy traffic has to turn (it's the road in the bottom left of the frame). The junction with the A92 can be seen in the distance.

A9013 Holburn Street

Looking east at the junction where HGVs following the A90 turn, the road pretty much follows a straight line all the way to Union Street.

Taken from outside the Holburn pub. It's interesting as the A9013 rarely crops up on signposts.

A9013 RCS - Coppermine - 2089.jpg
A9013 Route Confirmation sign

This is the only one on the road and we're a mile outside the city centre at the Talisman building (visible on approach to Aberdeen, it looks good at night)

A9013 Holburn Street Footbridge - Coppermine - 2088.jpg
A9013 Holburn Street Footbridge

This is where the old Aberdeen to Ballater railway crossed. For years it's been a cycle/foot path but required disembarkation onto street level to cross. The city council installed this bridge to allow for free movement on the path, but there's been problems with the fittings on the end (I'm not sure if they're visible but workmen were up there when I took the photo).

A9013 A quite odd sign

Just off Holburn Street, this sign says 'City Centre A92'. It's odd seeing as the A92 ended some 15 odd miles south! A really old relic that's in need of replacing...

A9013 Union Street - Coppermine - 2086.jpg
A9013 Union Street

Looking East at the junction with Bridge Street. This bit of road crosses the fairly impressive Union Bridge which crosses the B986 and the Inverness railway line.

B986

This shows the road in all its glory along with the railway. This whole area was a railway before rail traffic declined and the city council decided to lump a road in.

B986 Union Bridge - Coppermine - 2097.jpg
B986 Union Bridge

This shows the impressive Union Bridge which carries Union Street (and a shopping centre too!) over the valley. The B986 meets up with the Wapping Street - Guild Street gyratory, and eventually this should form part of a major North/South route (this part of the B986 is woefully underused, it's one of the best stretches of road in Aberdeen in my opinion)

B986

This shows a slight height difference between the carriageways. It should be noted that the railway is lower as well (though, the whole valley used to be full of various sidings)

B986 Woolmanhill Roundabout

This is the start of the little dual carriageway that runs under Union Street, Aberdeen. The road continues up to another dual carriagway after the roundabout.

A92 South leaving Aberdeen

This is where the A92 (formerly A90) leaves Aberdeen for the south. There's a wealth of destinations you can travel to according to the sign...

I took this one to show that the description of the path on CBRD's bad junctions is rather apt!

A92 North At Garthdee

The A92 (formerly A90) looking northbound at the Garthdee roundabout, Aberdeen. It's fairly busy going south, and this was taken well before rush hour. I'm still trying to work out what the pole in the middle is for, they erected it a couple of months back but stuck nothing on it! This is where the road becomes dual carriageway for a little bit after the Bridge of Dee.

New Style Keep Left Bollard

These bollards are starting to pop up around Aberdeen. This example was found in Springhill Road, between the A93 and A944, but there are more on Springbank Terrace (A93) and no doubt they'll be an everyday sight soon.

Now we're at the bridge...

Could it just be possible in the future that the Imperial version of this sign could be pulled down should the legislation about signage change to the metric standard?

Persley Bridge
One of (at the time) only 2 public bridges crossing the River Don in Aberdeen. The rural looking scene belies the fact that this is one of the busiest routeways in Aberdeen especially at rush hour with traffic queuing across the bridge.
