Transport Scotland is inviting local communities to have their say on the proposed design for the £11 million A96 Inveramsay Bridge improvements. The invite comes as Transport Scotland publishes the draft Road Orders and Environmental Statement for this scheme to remove a notorious north east bottleneck.
The designs go on display at public exhibitions in Huntly (18 April) and Inverurie (19 April), giving locals and road users a chance to comment on the proposals.
Transport Minister Keith Brown said:
“The Scottish Government has made clear our commitment to improve journey time reliability and remove the traffic lights which have affected road users travelling along this stretch of the A96 for many years. On completion, locals and visitors can expect real benefits through reduced congestion and improved journey reliability.
I would encourage anyone with an interest to come along to one of the public exhibitions next week to see our plans and take the opportunity to comment on them.”
The details of the public exhibitions are as follows:
Thursday 18 April 2013
12 noon – 8 pm
The Gordon Arms Hotel, The Square, Huntly AB54 8AF
Friday 19 April 2013
11 am – 7 pm
The Acorn Centre, West High Street, Inverurie AB51 3SA
