MSP Welcomes Rathen Road Safety Audit

Banff & Buchan SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed an assurance from the Scottish Executive that BEAR Scotland are to carry out a review of road safety at the Rathen turn-off on the A90.

However, the MSP expressed concern that a previous survey apparently carried out in 1998 had not been acted upon. Mr Stevenson commented:

“I am pleased that a BEAR Scotland are to undertake a review of road safety at this junction. Rathen has grown over the years as the A90 has become busier so it is understandable that there are concerns over safety locally.

“It would appear though that a similar survey was carried out by BEAR’s predecessors, Mouchel, in 1998 but little appears to be known of the results of this and I have asked the Minister to look into this.

“In the meantime, this is progress and I have asked that this be carried out as soon as possible in order that the findings may be acted upon swiftly.”

Note: Scottish Parliament Written Answer S1W-30461 states:

Stewart Stevenson (Banff & Buchan) (SNP): To ask the Scottish Executive what plans exist for the construction of a stacking lane at Rathen near Fraserburgh on the A90.

Lewis MacDonald (Deputy Minister for Transport): There are no current plans for improvement works at the Rathen junction on the A90. However, in view of local concerns, BEAR Scotland Limited has been asked to carry out a review of road safety at this location.
