The new Blackdog development is only 5 miles north of Aberdeen city centre and the Aberdeen Ferry Terminal. It’s located just off the A90 and the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR), directly linking the site to Aberdeen, Edinburgh and beyond.
The new AWPR – one of the largest infrastructure projects in Scotland - is due to complete in 2018 and will provide direct access into Blackdog. It will reduce journey times in some parts of north east Scotland by up to 50% and populations accessible from Blackdog will increase significantly.
