AWPR 7 day working proposal deadline

Further to the public announcement in the P+J on 17 February, it appears that at this time no formal application has yet been made to either Aberdeen City Council or Aberdeenshire Council to extend the working hours for the AWPR. Currently the contractors’ hours of work are 7.00 a.m. – 7.00 p.m. Monday – Friday and 8.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. on a Saturday. We believe that the Construction Joint Venture (CJV) wishes to extend these to 7.00 a.m. – 7.00 p.m. seven days per week and we have been advised that the CJV may wish to gauge the reaction to its proposal prior to any formal submission.
If people wish to make any comments (either negative or positive), then these should be lodged with the CJV by not later than noon, Tuesday 1 March 2016: in addition, written representations to the respective Directors of Roads/infrastructure at both Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council may be submitted.
