Diversion works for Aberdeen Aqueducts continue

Work is well progress in diverting two aqueducts in Aberdeen to allow the new Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route to be constructed.

The 1m diameter concrete lined brick raw water aqueduct constructed in 1866 will be diverted under the new dual carriageway in the grounds of the old Aberdeen International School.

The 48" Cast Iron potable aqueduct constructed in 1924 is being temporarily diverted to allow a new 60m span bridge to be constructed to carry the A93 over the road. Once the bridge is complete the aqueduct will be re-aligned through the structure. These works will be completed using under pressure connections (see image) and line stopping techniques to maintain supplies to Aberdeen.

Allen Gordon are undertaking detailed design for these complex works as well as over 80 water main and sewer diversion along the route.
