Italian date puts Aberdeen on map
An update of Aberdeen’s involvement in the European-wide Civitas Portis transportation project has been given to a conference in the Italian seaport city of Trieste.
Lord Provost Barney Crockett attended the three-day event representing Aberdeen City Council and its partners for the project which is worth £3.2million to the north-east.
The partners for the project also include Aberdeenshire Council, Nestrans, The Robert Gordon University, the University of Aberdeen, and Aberdeen Harbour Board. Civitas Portis is aiming to make a positive impact on five European port cities including Aberdeen, Trieste, Antwerp in Belgium, Constance in Romania, and Klaipeda in Lithuania.
