Marker posts locations on trunk roads and motorways: EIR release
FOI reference: FOI/202100211684
Date received: 9 Jun 2021
Date responded: 15 Jun 2021
Information requested

"The location of all the marker posts on your network, along with coordinates as to their physical location, that are on your trunk roads and motorways."

Response

As the information you have requested is 'environmental information' for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations. We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA.

This exemption is subject to the 'public interest test'. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes. This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.

Please see Annex A to this response for the data we hold relating to the location of marker posts on the trunk road network. Please note that this information is provided under an Open Government Licence and is provided without ANY warranty. It is the best information that we hold and you should make all efforts to confirm the accuracy of the information attached.
