Date lodged: 25 October 2016
To ask the Scottish Government what traffic delays due to roadworks, maintenance, repairs and improvements there are on the A90 and A96, and how long the delays are expected to last.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 7 November 2016
In October 2016, there were 65 sets of roadworks on the A90 between Fraserburgh and Perth, also 17 on the A96 between Aberdeen and Inverness. This includes roadworks associated with major projects, planned and emergency road maintenance, private developments and utilities work.
Delays to road users were not greater than 15 minutes on each occasion and for many would be substantially less.
In relation to future works, I refer the member to the answer to question S5W- 04046 on 8 November 2016. All answers to written parliamentary questions are available on the Parliament’s website, the search facility for which can be found at http://www.parliament.scot/parliamentarybusiness/28877.aspx
