Site Information for Aberdeen (UKA00399)
13/02/12 - ongoing
There is a construction site around 70m from the site where several hundred flats are being built. Works have been ongoing for the last 1-2 years and we haven't seen an impact on PM10 or PM2.5 concentrations. Staff haven't commented on any dust issues close the monitoring site during visits. The demolition (former factory and commercial premises) and site preparation works, which involved digging foundations etc, were completed several months ago and works are really now just the construction phase so there should be little impact on the monitoring station. Construction phase still not entirely complete.
The monitoring station is within a self-contained, air conditioned housing located in an open area of ground within a housing development. The city centre is approximately 1 kilometre from the site and Aberdeen beach is around 500m away. The nearest main road, the A956, is 70m away.
