Date lodged: 20 February 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has in place to improve safety at the Laurencekirk Junction on the A90 over the next two years.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 1 March 2017

Our most recent statistics show that there have been no fatal or serious accidents at the southern Laurencekirk junction since 2005. As such, we have no plans for further measures at this time, however we will continue to monitor road safety.

In the longer term, Transport Scotland is developing the design of the A90/A937 Laurencekirk Junction Improvement, which will bring improved road safety and economic benefits to road users and the local community in Laurencekirk and the wider north east.
