ID 6915
From here all the way to Dunecht there are great private roads or quiet back roads all the way to Dunecht. Only one locked gate to climb under/over, if this could be opened it would be a good way to get bikes off the busy A944,Joe Purkis

Things I likeNew cycle path from Kintore Business Park to Thainstone Roundabout
ID 4628
Cycle path has been completed between Kintore Business Park to Thainstone Roundabout. This has enabled people to cycle between Kintore and Port Elphinstone without going on or across the A96 road carriageways. This has encouraged a lot of cyclists and walkers/joggers, and will be used even more when the Kintore railway station is opened. Paul Davison

Things we need to work onCyclists need an access path from Miltonfold to Howes Road
ID 4073
This is a really bad choke point. Assuming you've worked out the tortuous route from Dyce to Bucksburn via bike, you are faced with a short length of narrow congested footpath past the Police Station. Cycling should be as convenient as driving by car. Then people would make the switch!sean evans

Things I likeEasy access to Kirkhill Cycle Trails avoiding A96... read below

Don't think like a car driver. If you cycle through Kirkhill Industrial Estate, you'll find an access path behind Halliburton on Howe Moss Crescent. This leads up to the cycle trails via a jeep track.sean evans

Things I don't likeThe whole point of this map is to promote sustainable transport
ID 4071
Therefore, comments suggesting cyclists waste their time putting their bike on a bus are pointless. It should be just as convenient to travel by cycle as it is the car. So let's see some sensible suggestions. Cyclists don't like dicing with death cycling on the A96 so either provide alternative routes or make SAFE provision alongside the carriageway.sean evans

Things we need to work onReposition this road junction for cyclists and pedestrians
ID 4070
If the Oyne to Chapel of Garioch road junction had a pedestrian and cycle access path alongside the South side of the railway, it would open up a safer route to allow cyclists to go from Insch to Inverurie via the back roads around Chapel of Garioch, without having to dice with death on a 100 metre stretch of the A96. It would join up with a huge network of safe and not too hilly roads.sean evans

Things we need to work onOld Kemnay Road pedestrian right of way across A96
ID 2663
1. When the A96 Inverurie by-pass was constructed, it cut through the community of Port Elphinstone leaving families west of the new line of the A96 without adequate arrangements to walk to the main part of the community. It is essential to construct a footbridge over the A96 so that we can walk into the main part of Port Elphinstone to access the school, shops and bus stops, or to walk into Inverurie. Such a bridge would be used by local residents and by people including tourists who use the Old Kemnay Road as a very attractive amenity for recreational activities. The 'alternative' to the pedestrian route across the by-pass is an extremely steep track underneath the by-pass. When the Don floods or is in heavy spate, river water floods this track and it is impossible to use it. In any case the track is so muddy throughout the year it is extremely dangerous - runoff from the A96 contributes greatly to this situation. And now the track has been a mixture of bare mud, running water and tracts of ice for some time. It is no exaggeration to call the path under the A96 lethal. I have already fallen in trying to make my way to the shops. But I do not have a car at the moment and so my only option is to walk across the A96, which is also dangerous because some car drivers ignore the warning signs alerting them to the presence of the footpath. 2. There is no road sign to alert drivers to the existence of a road leading to the houses west of the A96 in Port Elphinstone. It is both urgent and imperative to have such signs in place. 3. The houses west of the A96 form part of Port Elphinstone. We are a very long distance from any bus stop.Penny Dransart

ID 2655
Transport to and from Kemnay is terrible, either trying to get to Inverurie to get the train the bus and train times don't run together you have to wait in Inverurie for ages because bus arrives 10 minutes late for train. No transport in the evening from Inverurie. X20 to Aberdeen takes 1.5 hours to go 12 miles. Its all too much hassle easier to take the car.Alison Simpson

Things I don't likeTrain Fares
ID 2649
£2500 for an annual season pass (before the predicted fare rise in 2018) for Insch-Aberdeen line. I spend a total of £200 a month on all aspects for my car. Not a massive difference, but only viable if I completely give up my car. And if I give up my car, my options are seriously limited. Equally when I do take the train into Aberdeen, it's almost a 50/50 chance my train is delayed significantly or cancelled (has happened to me 5 times in the last 2 months). I hate the commute into Aberdeen, due to traffic and congestion, but I cannot afford to use public transport.Jack Rigby

Things we need to work onCongestion at Thainstone & Port Elphinstone roundabouts
ID 2652
Congestion at Thainstone & Port Elphinstone roundabouts has been a serious problem for over 10 years and no-one has done anything to reduce it. The Council should stop approving developments which load more and more traffic onto the roundabouts at peak hours. Most of the problem in the evening is the restriction in northerly flow caused by the Don bridge single lane and the journey through Inverurie town centre for Oldmeldrum-bound commuters. In the long term, the A96 dualling programme might reduce the congestion a bit. The plans I've seen to date however, will either ruin Bennachie or the Keithhall estate. The Council should upgrade the Dyce-Oldmeldrum road. The A96 dualling team should consider a route for the Inverurie bypass starting at the Kinellar roundabout. This would enable Oldmeldrum-bound traffic to bypass Inverurie town centre. The bypass could rejoin the existing A96 at the Inveramsey bridge. Paul Davison

Things I don't likeRE: Comment about Stagecoach 37 & 10
ID 2641
It's a bus, it's supposed to go in past multiple places to keep it profitable. The 10 runs once every hour which is more than enough for a long distance service between Aberdeen/Inverness. They did have a 30min service once between Aberdeen & Inverurie but NOBODY used it. There is timetable changes coming Jan 8th 2018 which may improve times but really, nothing can be done unless you want insane timing points which means sitting around for ages. This individual needs to learn to be patient.Someone Someone

Things I don't likeDarkness and cyclists
ID 2646
I have been startled to find cyclists in the left hand lane, in the dark, on the dual carriageway. This section of the road is already complex, as cars turn into and across the carriageway. Combined with the darkness, I worry about the use of cycles on such a busy road and have seen drivers brake sharply, causing others behind to do so too, having not realised a cycle was in the lane.James Dunphy

Things we need to work onQueuing traffic
ID 2645
I often spend 10-15mins trying to leave Inverurie in the morning, with traffic backed up on Blackhall Road. In the winter this delay can grow to 20mins+ and I presume is caused by the lack of dual carriageway. This sometimes leads me to seek to leave via Port Elphinstone, however, again this route can become extremely congested. Today, as an example, it took me 30minutes to join the dual carriageway.James Dunphy

ID 2643
Of course it's dangerous to cycle here! It's a dual carriageway which is used by thousands of vehicles everyday and there's the ongoing AWPR works. Not sure why anyone would cycle here when there's plenty buses to take to Aberdeen/Peterhead/Fraserburgh/etc.Someone Someone

Things I don't likeRE: Comment regarding "expensive buses"
ID 2642
The bus fares are cheap as anything. If you feel they are too high then that's just you. The problem is car users like yourself. More people using cars means more congestion, more pollution and slightly higher fares to make up for reduced passenger numbers. Bus > Car.Someone Someone

ID 2639
currently having to take public transport to Altens Industrial Estate, this journey takes approximately 2 hours and 2 buses to travel approximately 17-18 miles. Currently no transport running from park and ride at Dyce to Altens, this should be looked at. Also my partner is currently attending Robert Gordons University, she tried the park and ride at Dyce, it was a nightmare, parked up, unfortunately buses only run direct to city centre, then had to take another bus to uni campus. The same journey back home, exhausted, tired and freezing, not again.The communication between Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire transport hierarchy is obviously non-existent.iain Mackay

ID 2430
I was also looking forward to using the park and ride especially to ARI where parking for staff is very limited. Unfortunately the bus service is poor. I drive a large car with a roof rack and unfortunately it does not fit within the height restrictions. I appreciate why there may be height restrictions but feel I am being penalised due to other members of the public abusing the area? Is there a designated area available for people who have roof racks, bike racks or motor homes?Debbie Michie

Things I don't likeTraffic lights phasing
ID 2429
Why do we need to stop heading out of Aberdeen, when traffic heading in to Aberdeen gets a turn? Fair enough at rush hour, but later at night when traffic is quiet it is frustrating to have to sit and wait for the lights to cycle through each part of the junction, when there are no cars!Nicola Fraser

Things we need to work onPedestrian/cycle path betwen Bridge of Don and Dyce
ID 2428
I think a significant number of people would commute between Bridge of Don and Dyce and, at present, cyclists, runners and pedestrians have to go down the busy The Parkway and Mugiemoss route or round the back roads, which are not really suitable for cycling. The development of the Grandhome Estate could be a great opportunity to insert a cycle/pedestrian route to Dyce, which would link Bridge of Don to workplaces in Dyce, the train station and the Formartine and Buchan Way.Joel Evans

Things we need to work onSafe cycling path from Inverurie to Aberdeen (and Safe to cycle not simply safe in the eyes of planners!)
ID 2426
Need a full, safe cycling pathway or route between Inverurie and Aberdeen. Cycling on the A96 is dangerous especially around slip roads. it is also unsafe for vehicles on the road - multiple occasions I've witnessed extreme braking or swerving to miss a cyclist and other vehicles. the cycle path from port elphinstone to Thainstone is OK, but becomes a joke when you have to cross a busy A96 to safely cycle from Thainstone to Kintore - even worse now that there is a cycle path from Kintore to the Business park!Robert McGregor

ID 2397
Really bad bus service - times and cost. A return adult bus fare is far more than fuel spent in car to Aberdeen & back. If we were serious about taking cars off the road then the bus fare would be cheaper. We would also reinstate the railway line. If the AWPR can be built, then so can the railway line.David Caney

Things I don't likeNo cycle provision at all on new Craibstone roundabout

Things I don't likeThere is no cycle lane from Inverurie / kintore to Aberdeen
ID 2392
I choose to cycle most days into Aberdeen along A96 because alternative route is just as dangerous (and much longer) however there could so easily be a cycle lane. Too bad if traffic doesn't like a cyclist on dual carriageway - this is 2017 and the A96 has been around for too long without cycle provision. You could make use of existing (old road) either side between Kintore & Blackburn for example - but that might require underpass?? IS THERE THE WILL TO DO THIS??????David Caney

The Haudigan is a major embarrassment for the City of Aberdeen - a city that is one of the most cycle unfriendly cities in the world.

Things we need to work onTraffic queues morning & night!
ID 2383
I am currently travelling from Port Elphinstone to Aberdeen by bus and am so frustrated that the 37 takes over 90 mins to go to Aberdeen - on a good day! Firstly, it has to take it's place in the long, slow queue of traffic coming out ( and in) to Inverurie, so is NEVER on time. Then you go on a tour of city and suburbs, empty park & ride, a hospital that has more buses than is needed, then eventually we get to the city centre! The 10 does not run frequently enough to be a useful service for workers commuting. If the 37 was to go into the new AECC that would again add to the time it takes to get into Aberdeen, which for me means going back to using my car. Allison Clark

Things we need to work onVery poorly maintained roads
ID 2382
I live in Inverurie and work at Woodend Hospital meaning I have to take "back roads" rather than the main roads which are busy and dangerous when people are walking or cycling on them. The pot holes on this road are extensive. It makes driving on these roads difficult, never mind cycling where you would easily cause damage to your bike if you hit one. There are no public transport options for me - I would be required to take a bus or train into Aberdeen city centre and then a bus back out to Woodend Hospital which would be costly and timely.Lisa McIntosh

As a daily commuter - Public transport options are non-existent. Buses are too expensive, not frequent enough and too slow. On the rare occasion I've used the bus, I have witnessed people being left behind at peak times because there are too many people using it. Will take a lot to convince me that a park & ride will ever be worthwhile.Elaine Davidson

I don't agree that cycle lanes should be added to the A96 for long distances (unless, of course, completely separate cycle paths were created away from the road). However, with the number of cyclists that go up to Kirkhill for mountain biking/trails it would be great to see a cycle path up Tyrebagger to Kirkhill from Aberdeen. I don't personally cycle at Kirkhill but see many cyclists who do make the treacherous journey on their bikes up Tyrebagger from Aberdeen and regardless of whether they are well lit up/dressed etc the A96 is not a place for a cyclist. Make a cycle path here so that cyclists can safely enjoy the great trails at Kirkhill!A B

ID 2379
We have moved to Aberdeenshire from Norfolk and have always used Park & Ride services to get into both Norwich and Cambridge for shopping and work. However, having used the Park & Ride here twice I would not want to use it again. It needs to be a straight in and out service, not stopping all the time and it needs to be more frequent. Park & Ride can be a great service but this one is practically pointless - it is just as quick to queue to go into the City to park, which is such a shame when the facilities and location are good.

ID 2376
I was very excited to hear about the new park and ride at Craibstone. As I commute from Inverurie and work at the hospital site I thought that it would mean that I wouldn't have to queue at Haudigan and other points. Unfortunately, there is such a naff bus service from the park and ride to Foresterhill (number 37, I'm looking at you) I wouldn't get to work until about 0945 as I have to drop children off at nursery in Inverurie first. If there were better bus links from the park and ride it could be great, but the few times I've got the 37 home, as it swings through the park and ride I've seen a maximum of 6 cars in the huge car park. If the bus service is useless, people aren't going to use it. This should be a priority.

As the other marker notes, traffic can be horrendous here, particularly in winter. The left lane leading up to the roundabout is left and ahead, and the right lane is right only. It is by no means a solution but it may help to slightly alleviate congestion by allowing those going straight on to use the right hand lane, thus making the left lane left only and the right lane for those going straight and right.C Marshall

Remove these lights as they only add to congestion which adds delays to local bus services. Plenty of other areas people can cross the road at.Someone Someone

Things I don't likeCycle path comment
ID 2339
Not sure why the other marker wants a cycle path, this a busy dual carriageway and as such, cycling is dangerous. Cyclists only this road only cause accidents and congestion. If you have to bring a bike with you to whereever, you should make use of the 37/10 Stagecoach buses which can take your bike (coach only).Someone Someone

If more people used the Stagecoach buses, there would be a hell of a lot less traffic on the roads. The buses would also be on time more often. I use them all the time and have zero issues. Ditch your car and use the bus, folk.Someone Someone

Things I don't likeBottleneck
ID 2330
At rush hour in the mornings, traffic can be queued back from this roundabout all the way onto High Street in Inverurie. Sometimes it takes 15-20 minutes to get through Inverurie, but the traffic is just as bad at the A96 Blackhall roundabout too, so both options are poor. If public transport options were better and reliable it would maybe get some of tbeee cars off the roads.Kirstie Waterston

I have tried to cycle this way and would cycle more often but I'm not too keen on dying. The alternatives along the country roads at rush hour are no better. To encourage me into a more sustainable commute there needs to be a route that doesn't involve me risking my life.Stephen Hargreaves

I am hoping that cycling is promoted as one of the means to get between the new AECC and the city center, and that the provision of safe cycle paths (in other words NOT cycle paths that cars are allowed to park on) is being taken seriously.Tony Craig

For a P&R to be successful two things are needed. (1) frequent transport to city centre - frequent enough that you don't need to consult a timetable (2) fast transport to the city centre. 35 minutes or more is far too long, which is why we need a more rapid transit system like a tram. At the moment people will not be persuaded because neither of these two conditions is met. A look at many other cities throughout Europe (and beyond) will give an idea of what I mean. For example, when I visit Vienna I can get from the airport to the city centre in 16 minutes! The C-Train in Calgary (Canada) is another example of a great and well-used system.Terry Ashton

The provision of a cycle path between Kintore and Kintore Business Park was a step in the right direction, but is frankly useless unless it also connects with Inverurie. We need this to be extended so that a safe cycleway can be established between the two settlements.Dave Miller
