A96 dualling display call

East of Huntly to Aberdeen design updates

A series of drop-in sessions are being held later this month to update local communities and road users on the ongoing design work for dualling the 26 mile section of the A96 between East of Huntly and Aberdeen.

Following options exhibitions last October, the number of options has now been reduced and local residents will have a chance to see and comment on the proposals being taken forward as we look to identify a preferred option by the end of this year.

Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson said:

“The Scottish Government has given a clear commitment to dual the A96 which will see delivery of around 88 miles of upgraded road between Inverness and Aberdeen, a huge task but one we are committed to delivering.

“As part of that work, we are taking forward the design work for the stretch of the route between East of Huntly and Aberdeen. Having shared our options and invited comment from local residents on a series of options last October, we have now reduced the number of options for this challenging section of the A96. We have also made some changes to the options being taken forward as a result of the feedback we have received.

“I would encourage anyone with an interest in this scheme to visit one of the drop-ins from 28-31 May and give us their views. The vital feedback we receive will help inform the design and assessment work as we look to identify a preferred option by the end of this year.”
