Stevenson Hails Go Ahead For A90 Dualling

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the announcement that the decision has been made to proceed with the dualling of the A90 from Balmedie to Tipperty. This will improve journey times by removing the bottleneck that is caused by the stretch of existing single carriageway on the road between Aberdeen and Ellon.

Funding for the project is contained in the budget currently being progressed through the Scottish Parliament as the upgrade to the A90 and the construction of the AWPR will form a single contract.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“This decision is good news for residents of Banff & Buchan and is another clear sign of the commitment this Scottish Government has to improving infrastructure in the region.

“When the upgrade to the A90 from Balmedie to Tipperty is complete, we will see significant reductions in journey times to and from Aberdeen. This is good news for business and good news for the many people in Banff & Buchan who make that journey on a regular basis.

“I know only too well how often people can face significant delays on the A90 because of the existing stretch of single carriageway, so this decision will be extremely welcome to everyone who uses the road regularly.”
