A gaffe by Nicola Sturgeon caused fresh confusion over the completion date for Aberdeen’s long-awaited bypass yesterday.
Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR)
Major projects worth a combined total of £1.5 billion are currently delayed or running over budget in the north and north-east, it has emerged.
The latest part of the “transformational” Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route is expected to open tomorrow.
Young people across the north-east are being reminded to stay safe during the summer holidays and stay away from construction sites.
Firms building major public infrastructure projects such as the Aberdeen bypass should be covered by freedom of information laws, it has been claimed.
Nicola Sturgeon has vowed to take allegations seriously if they relate to workers’ safety on the Aberdeen bypass project amid claims that accidents were “under-reported”.
An urgent inquiry has been demanded after it was claimed that accidents on the Aberdeen bypass scheme have been far more frequent than transport chiefs admitted.
