DALMALLY Primary School pupil Anna Macfarlane Barrow won the chance to name a new BEAR Scotland winter spreader through a competition run by Transport Scotland this winter.
The winning name, The Ice Destroyer, was picked by Transport Minister Derek Mackay as part of Transport Scotland’s trunk road winter campaign launch for 2015/2016.
Newly-named ‘The Ice Destroyer’ is one of 45 state- of-the-art mega-spreaders, including 22 new vehicles, that will serve trunk roads in the north of Scotland this winter. The school is one of seven from across the North of Scotland that took part in a competition to name seven of BEAR Scotland’s new state- of-the-art spreaders that serve the trunk roads in their areas.
