Following an accident in June 2013 which saw a lorry overturn causing serious damage to a local resident’s home, Mr Stevenson was contacted by concerned constituents and subsequently arranged a meeting with Transport Scotland and BEAR Scotland officials to explore how best to improve safety at the bend.

The vehicle activated chevrons were installed by BEAR Scotland on 3 October 2014.

Mr Stevenson remarked:

“Following the terrible accident that took place at Cortes in June 2013, I am pleased that Transport Scotland and BEAR Scotland have listened to the concerns of my constituents.

“This additional warning for drivers will I’m sure help remind them that they should take care and travel at a sensible speed at this bend.”

Cllr Charles Buchan commented:

“I'm pleased that BEAR Scotland has installed these state of the art chevrons, warning traffic of the really dangerous bend at Cortes on the A90 Fraserburgh to Peterhead road.

“They have been some time in coming and some solution to the problem was really needed.

“Let us hope that they make all drivers aware of the peril of taking the corner at more than 30 mph.

“I would like to thank all the residents who attended the meeting at the BanCar Hotel, Stewart Stevenson MSP, and Transport Scotland for instigating this safety measure.”
