To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-10755 by Humza Yousaf on 11 September 2017, for what reason the cost of the temporary traffic lights on the A76 is not recorded as a separate cost, and whether it will provide an estimate of the costs associated with their deployment in each of the last three years.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 26 September 2017
With regards to routine and planned maintenance / improvement works delivered by Scotland TranServ, typically the costs associated with temporary traffic lights are included as part of agreed contract rates to deliver schemes. As such these costs cannot be isolated and reported separately from the wider cost of traffic management.
