S5W-21935: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 6 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, following the completion of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR), whether it plans to detrunk the section of the A92 between the Charleston and Findon junctions and, if so, for what reason, and for what reason other sections of the A92 south of the Findon junction are not being considered for detrunking.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 18 March 2019

The Detrunking Order published in 2010 sets out the detrunking requirements for the project. Our plans for detrunking were extensively discussed with Local Authorities prior to publishing the Orders and as a consequence of this we are not planning to detrunk the section of A92 between Charleston and Findon nor sections further south. This is standard practice and consistent with our strategy across all major projects.
