all energy 2014

More than 8, 000 visitors are expected to arrive in the city this week to take part in the All-Energy event at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.

 

There is likely to be an impact on traffic and the travelling public is advised to allow extra time for their journeys and expect some delays, especially on the main routes into the city.

 

Car parking will be in high demand at the AECC and people travelling there are advised to use cycle, walk, use public transport, or to car share. Parking in the AECC site will be limited, as much of the car park will be covered by temporary structures housing the exhibition.

 

The number 40 Park and Ride service will be running to and from the AECC and a free-shuttle bus will be operate between Aberdeen Airport and the venue. Other bus services travel near to the AECC. Shuttle buses will run from several city centre hotels and delegates are encouraged to make the most of this facility.

 

The Park and Ride site at the AECC will be operational throughout the event, but is expected to be very busy as it will be available to All-Energy visitors, as well as Park and Ride customers.

 

Variable message signs on the main routes leading into the city will relay traffic information.

 

Motorists should not park on grass verges, pavements, or in restricted areas.
