S5W-15001: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 1 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what impact the delay to the opening of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) will have on roads in the area and those roads presently being used to divert traffic.

Answered by: Keith Brown 14 March 2018

The project contractor, Aberdeen Roads Limited (ARL), is required to keep any disruption throughout the delivery of the AWPR to a minimum. ARL is required to consult with key stakeholders including the relevant local roads authority and Police Scotland. We are continuing to work with the contractor and our stakeholders, with a view to delivering the benefits associated with opening areas of the project as soon as it is safe to do so.
