S5W-20140: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 22 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the Cross Tay Link Road not being included in the final list of funded projects under the Tay Cities Deal, whether it will provide alternative funding to allow the link road to be built.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 6 December 2018

The Tay Cities Deal includes several Scottish Government commitments to support connectivity across the region in the coming years. It will lead to investment in low carbon and active travel hubs, better integration of public transport in Perth and developing Dundee Airport as well as the work which is already ongoing to produce a region wide strategic transport model.

As part of our previously stated commitment to invest £200 million in the area the Scottish Government will set out the details of the further £50 million in the coming months following discussions with regional partners.
