MSP welcomes bypass

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson welcomed the opening of the Fochabers Bypass last week. Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said: “I am delighted that the Fochabers bypass has been delivered on budget and ahead of schedule as it will significantly improve the journey times of many people travelling in and out of the Banffshire & Buchan Coast area from the West.

“The delivery of this project shows the commitment of the SNP Government to improving infrastructure in the North East and with improvements to the A90 between Balmedie and Tipperty and the construction of the AWPR to come once the frustrating legal delays can be overcome, residents of Banffshire & Buchan Coast can expect to see further improvements in travelling to and from the area in the years ahead.

“These improvements represent a real economic boost to an area far beyond their immediate vicinity and their delivery is extremely significant for people in Banffshire & Buchan Coast.”
