Aberdeen to Laurencekirk Multi Modal Corridor Study

About the study

Nestrans is carrying out a multi-modal study to investigate transport problems and opportunities between Aberdeen and Laurencekirk considering walking, cycling, bus and rail travel.  The main aim of this study is to identify options that will encourage more people to travel sustainably for trips along the corridor (i.e. walking, cycling and using public transport), particularly for regular commuting journeys.

As part of this we asked for feedback from members of the public and key stakeholders to better understand views on the existing transport network along this corridor; how people plan to use the transport network on the corridor in the future; and what options should be considered to improve the sustainable transport offering.

This work is being funded by Transport Scotland’s Local Rail Development Fund.

While rail options including the potential for new stations south of Aberdeen will form part of the study’s considerations, the study will examine a wider range of multi- modal interventions, including improvements to the active travel and bus networks, designed to increase sustainable travel along the corridor.
