Answered by: Humza Yousaf 7 November 2017

Transport Scotland works closely with the organisers of all major events and support is also provided through Traffic Scotland. This support consists of mini sites on the Traffic Scotland web site, the use of Traffic Scotland social media and the use of variable Message Signs (VMS). These resources are used to highlight to road users in the area of the possibility of increased traffic and are not used for the purpose of advertising specific events or tourist attractions.
