OldAberdeenRoadWork is starting on the “Old Aberdeen road” that runs from the edge of the village southward towards Tolquhon Castle and Udny Green.

The owner of the new house being constructed near Boghouse which is next to the track is leveling the road with hardcore and lowering the verges.

It is to allow for easier access to his new home, but there will be benefits to those who walk along this popular route.

There will be some disruption and occasional closure for the next few days or so but the road will be available for walkers again shortly in a much improved state.  The work is expected to last a week to 10 days and may involve Saturday working but will be weather dependent.

Tarves Community Council have been informed by Haddo Estate about the owners work and apologise for any temporary inconvenience.

    Does lowering the verges mean taking the walls away completely, because that’s what’s been done on the East side and a third of the west? Unless they are to be replaced? Work was going on 2/4/16 in the morning with no warning given to path users.

      The removal of the field boundary walls along the road is an issue for the owners and tenants of the fields or road. The Estate were asked to agree to the buidling up on the road and the widening of the verges, which appears to mean removing walls. Aberdeenshire Council, as far as the community Council understands, has no locus to intervene unless it breaches planning regulations. This is being looked into.
