The City Centre Masterplan envisages Aberdeen as a ‘cycling city’.
It aims to ‘create a safe cycling environment that is free of traffic as far as practically possible’ that would be ‘well integrated with city wide routes’. Projects proposed include Cycle highways; Cycle hire scheme; and Cycle hubs.
The Masterplan stresses the health and economic benefits that would flow.
The redesign of Broad Street as a pedestrian, cycle and bus only space was supported by sustainable transport charity Sustrans. Similar long term plans exist for Union Street.
