S5W-19061: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 26 September 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how much resurfacing work is required on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR), and whether this will delay the opening of the road to traffic.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 11 October 2018

As part of the robust quality management system on AWPR, a number of minor defects have been identified in the surfacing. This is not unusual in projects of this nature and the repairs will be undertaken by the contractor at no cost to the public purse. Keith Brown MSP, the then Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work, updated the REC Committee in March 2018 updating them on project progress and indicating that the road would open in late Autumn and I am pleased to say the contractor remains on target to do so.
