Public asked for feedback on travelling between Aberdeen and Laurencekirk

Lucy Johnston 2021, News

A new survey has launched today (Monday 20 September) to study transport problems and opportunities between Aberdeen and Laurencekirk.

Nestrans is looking to identify options that will encourage more people to travel in a sustainable way along the corridor; be it walking, cycling, or using public transport.

An online survey will be open for four weeks from Monday 20th September until Monday 18th October 2021.

The study is being funded by Transport Scotland’s Local Rail Development Fund. It will investigate rail options, including the potential for new stations south of Aberdeen, as well as a wider range of possibilities across different travel methods. This includes improvements to the active travel and bus networks.

Chair of Nestrans, Councillor Sandra Macdonald said: “I’d encourage everyone who lives or travels within the area to take part in the consultation.

“This survey provides an excellent opportunity to share your views on the existing network. We also want to hear how you plan to travel along this corridor in the future, and what we can do to improve what is available for sustainable and active travel.”
