Transport Scotland has agreed to meet residents of a Mearns community concerned about safety at a busy junction.
They say it has become even more of a problem with the closure of the nearby Abbeyton Bridge resulting in more cars trying to get out of the junction.
North East MSP Liam Kerr called on Transport Secretary Michael Matheson to intervene.
Although Transport Scotland, which has responsibility for trunk roads, has said it has no plans for the junction, it has agreed to a meeting with members of Mearns Community Council to “listen to their concerns”.
A spokesman told The Courier: “Transport Scotland monitors the safety of the trunk network on an annual basis and prioritises its safety investments on those locations where the most effective casualty reduction outcomes are expected.
“Our records show no history of injury accidents at this location and we have no plans for the junction.
“Transport Scotland, along with its operating company Bear Scotland, has offered to meet with Mearns Community Council, which covers the A90/B967 junction, to listen to their concerns.”
It comes after Mr Kerr called on Mr Matheson to support road users left “in the dark” and improve safety measures at the junction.
He said several Fordoun residents had said they were “terrified they are to cross the A90 carriageway using this junction”.
He said: “Aberdeenshire Council have acknowledged these concerns and, although not responsible for trunk roads, are keen to engage and receive suggestions for any potential improvements to their road network in the area.
“I don’t believe sufficient attention has been paid to the inadequate junctions people are using along the A90 every day.”
In 2017, a study by the Scottish Conservatives found most of the accidents on the A90 happened in the vicinity of junctions.
