find out more about regional transport and digital connectivity
Getting to and around the Aberdeen City Region is a key point of focus. Over £4.5 billion is being invested in transport improvements across Aberdeenshire including the recently opened western peripheral route, major rail improvements, new river crossings and a £20 million airport refurbishment programme.
There's a major £400 million harbour expansion programme too. One of the largest marine infrastructure projects in the UK for many decades, it will provide direct to quayside access for some of the largest cruise liners on the planet.
Digital connectivity is also a regional priority. A £1.5 million investment has been made to create the ONE Tech Hub for digital and entrepreneurship activity in Aberdeen city centre. Furthermore investment in new digital infrastructure has made Aberdeen Scotland's first gigabit city and is one of the best-connected cities on the planet, benefitting residents and businesses alike.
