An ‘Access to Laurencekirk’ consultation event is to be held in January, open to residents, commuters and businesses.
They will be invited to have their say on the findings of a study commissioned last December by the North East of Scotland Transport Partnership (Nestrans) in conjunction with Transport Scotland, Tactran, Aberdeenshire and Angus Councils.
The study’s aim is to develop a preferred solution for access between the A90 trunk road and Laurencekirk and Montrose that is cost effective, improves road safety and meets the needs of local businesses and residents, while ensuring the efficient operation of Laurencekirk High Street.
Option-testing is nearing completion, but feedback on the results will form part of the final appraisal.
Nestrans chair, Councillor Peter Argyle, said: “A great deal of work has gone in to this study, to identify the best possible solutions for Laurencekirk residents and businesses.
“The study is assisting in the clarification of the extent of problems, opportunities, objectives and the best solutions.
“This is the next in a series of stakeholder events, held to ensure that all interested parties have an opportunity to share their opinions.
“I would encourage as many people as possible to come along to the event, to feed in to the process and help form the final outcome.”
Head along to the Dickson Memorial Hall in Station Road on January 21, from 2 until 8pm.
