Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route

The Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route is a 22-mile expressway, currently under construction, situated to the west of Aberdeen and running between Stonehaven and Blackdog. Upon completion, it will form part of the A90 route between Edinburgh and Fraserburgh. It includes a link road (technically the southern leg of the route, with the road to Stonehaven forming the Fastlink section of the project), to form an extension of the A956, between Cleanhill Junction and the Charlestown Interchange.

with the old route of the A90 is expected to return to its original A92 number. There was a protracted legal fight over the road and whether the inquiry process was sufficient.

The road is a dual two-lane carriageway with fully grade-separated junctions throughout, with the exception of Cleanhill Junction (a roundabout), and the terminating junctions at either end (Stonehaven Junction and Blackdog Junction). There is also a short D3 section between the North Kingswells Junction and the Craibstone Junction for the A96.
