S5W-21466: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 6 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of delays to the completion of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and the so-called Don Crossing, whether this will this result in further delays to the detrunking of the existing A90 trunk road through Aberdeen.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 21 February 2019

No. Following the opening of the final section of the AWPR on 19 February 2019, the existing A92 (previously A90) trunk road through Aberdeen (excluding the section at the A90/A96 Haudagain Improvement Project) will be de-trunked on 1 April, following the opening of the final section of the AWPR. This is standard practice and aligns with the Detrunking Orders published in 2010.
