But it now has a new city bypass (the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route, AWPR) in the A90, which has eased things somewhat. As with any city, the centre can get congested around rush hour.

Aberdeen's low emission zone

In May 2022, Aberdeen Council introduced a low-emission zone. But this is for an introductory period of two years, and it will be enforced from June 2024. Check out the Low Emission Zones Scotland to see if your vehicle can go into the LEZ. The good news for drivers is that the Aberdeen low emission zone is a token gesture and covers only a little of the city centre. You can see an interactive map of the clean air zone here.
