Date lodged: 1 March 2018
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-09685 by Humza Yousaf on 15 June 2017, and the recent meeting of the Aberdeen to Central Belt Reference Group on 27 February 2018, whether it will now set out the options that the group is assessing and prioritising regarding the Usan Junction and South Esk viaduct.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 13 March 2018
I refer the member to the answer to S5W-09685 on 27 June 2017 and to S5W-12393 on 15 November 2017. The comprehensive assessment from Consultants OVE ARUP, expected later in 2018, will be considered by the Reference Group and is expected to identify the optimum package of investment and service changes that will secure the best possible return from the £200 million investment.
