Next steps for Union Terrace Gardens

Major structural work will get under way this month to help transform Union Terrace Gardens.

The programme for Union Terrace includes balustrade strengthening, the replacement of the existing arches, slab reinforcement and resurfacing.

From January 27, traffic will be permitted to travel only in a northbound direction – from Union Street to Rosemount Viaduct – with the restriction expected to be in place until mid-November.

A one-way system is needed to maintain a safe working environment.

Union Terrace Gardens will feature new entrances, pavilions and walkways, flexible events space, sympathetic landscaping, a greater number and variety of trees, bespoke lighting, and the restoration of the Victorian toilets as well as the Union Terrace arches.
