Travel by Car

The main traffic routes into Aberdeen are the A90 from the South and the A96 from the North. The A90 is entirely dual carriageway south of Aberdeen; the A96 has stretches of dual carriageway. Like many major cities, Aberdeen is becoming congested with traffic and the rush hour is best avoided if possible. Parking at the Foresterhill site is tight during normal working hours. Research volunteers can use dedicated parking to the rear of the Health Sciences Building by contacting the CRF in advance. To find the Health Sciences Building, follow the directions above to reach the ring road (Anderson Drive). Exit from the ring road at a set of traffic lights onto Ashgrove Road West and continue through the first set of traffic lights and then take a right turn onto Cornhill Road. The car park is the first on your right. When you reach the car park barrier, press the buzzer and the building receptionist will raise the barrier. Entry to the Health Science Building is by the main door which is on the opposite side of the building to the car park. Please report to reception on your arrival.
