King St/Ellon Road is a main artery into Aberdeen. We are advised that the traffic volumes due tot he AWPR have reduced and in order to lock in this benefit there need to be some urgency to utilise freed up road space to more sustainable forms of transport.
And no - the parallel NCR1 isn't suitable. It's hilly with cobbles and have weird diverts. as a tourist route through the university and Old Aberdeen, its fine.
