Stevenson Delight at AWPR Ruling

Commenting on the announcement that the UK Supreme Court regarding the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route, Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson said:

“The objectors have not only had their day in court but also chance to appeal at the Court of Session, where their case was comprehensively dismissed and now a third bite of the cherry which, frankly, was a step too far and only served to further delay the project and increase costs to the taxpayer.

“The people of the North-east signalled their clear wish that this road to go ahead as quickly as possible, as does the Scottish Government, and I am delighted that work on the project will begin immediately.

“I also welcome the fact that the construction contract will stipulate that all job opportunities must be advertised through local job centres and all sub contracts to be tendered must be advertised on the Public Contracts Scotland web portal.  There will also be minimum requirements set for apprentices, graduate trainees and jobs, securing wider benefits for the local community.”
