De­lays af­fect fly­over pro­ject

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - NEWS - BY GRA­HAM BROWN

Hold-ups to Aberdeen’s western by­pass have prompted fur­ther pres­sure from Lau­rencekirk junc­tion cam­paign­ers for an early start to work on the £24 mil­lion fly­over pro­ject.

A grade-sep­a­rated cross­ing for the busy blackspot junc­tion with the A937 to Marykirk and Mon­trose was an­nounced in 2016.

Con­ser­va­tive MSP Liam Kerr ques­tioned Trans­port Sec­re­tary Michael Matheson on the timetable for the pro­ject.

Mr Matheson said progress would de­pend on the level and na­ture of rep­re­sen­ta­tion re­ceived in re­sponse to the pub­lished draft or­ders and whether a pub­lic in­quiry is re­quired to deal with any ob­jec­tions.

READY: The south­ern stretch be­tween Stone­haven and Craib­stone could fi­nally be opened to traf­fic next week
