Stevenson Welcomes Engagement on A96 Dualling

MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast Stewart Stevenson has welcomed Transport Scotland’s commitment to engage with the public on plans to dual the A96 at a series of exhibitions.

Transport Scotland officials will be available at these meetings to explain the context of the current work on the A96 dualling programme and to discuss the planning and design process, and how it informs the dualling programme.

Mr Stevenson commented:

“The A96 is a key road for the North and North-east of Scotland, and I am therefore pleased that the Scottish Government is committed to complete the dualling the A96 by 2030.

“By engaging with the public, I hope that Transport Scotland will ensure that work on this route has the support of those who reside alongside the road, as well as those who use it on a regular basis.

“I would encourage anyone with an interest to attend one of the meetings to make their views known.”

Public engagement events will take place in 9 communities along the length of the A96 and include The Longmore Hotel, Keith on Tuesday 19 November and The Gordon Arms Hotel, Huntly on Thursday 21 November. Both events are open from 12.00pm to 7.00pm.
