To ask the Scottish Government, prior to the announcement of City Region Deal funding, how it had planned to pay for the A90 grade separated junction at Laurencekirk, and where any funds have been reallocated.
Answered by: Keith Brown 27 April 2018
In January 2016 the Scottish Government announced £24 million for the design and construction of a new grade-separated junction at Laurencekirk as part of a package of additional investment alongside the Aberdeen City Region Deal. This additional investment enabled Transport Scotland to commence the design and assessment process of the scheme.
