Campaigners have been fighting for a junction for 9 years now

Campaigners have been fighting for a junction for 9 years now

The A937/A90 Junction Campaign group have taken a different route towards get their message out - with a new car window sticker.

The sticker, which is available through the group’s Facebook page, is on sale for £2.

The page, which currently has over 3500 members, is taking support on the road by allowing people to attach the red and white sign to campaign for a grade-separated junction at the notorious Laurencekirk blackspot.

The campaign group want to put more pressure on the Scottish Government with plans to hold a demonstration outside Holyrood in the near future.

It was announced last month that Nestrans had appointed a company to study the preferred solution for access to the town with the ‘Access to Laurencekirk Study’ contract being awarded to CH2M HILL.

The study will consider the current conditions, future traffic growth on the A90 from potential development within Laurencekirk and the impact on the surrounding areas.

The Minister for Transport and Veterans, Keith Brown, said: “The Scottish Government is committed to working with Nestrans and Aberdeenshire Council to improve the A90 at Laurencekirk.

“The appointment of consultants to take forward the appraisal and design works, which we are part-funding, is an important milestone in that work.

‘‘It will also help determine a robust case for a preferred option for accessing Laurencekirk.”
