A96 Dualling

Dear Sir / Madam


As you may be aware, Transport Scotland has been progressing with the design development and assessment of route options to provide a new A96 dual carriageway between east of Huntly and Aberdeen.

As part of our ongoing community and stakeholder engagement for the scheme, drop-in sessions are to be held in Inverurie, Blackburn and Huntly from 28 to 31 May 2019. The purpose of these events is to provide an update on the work carried out since the last public exhibitions held in October 2018, giving further information on the design and assessment process and on the options being progressed through the DMRB Stage 2 Assessment.

Representatives from Transport Scotland and their design consultants, AmeyArup, will be available to answer questions on the design and assessment work being carried out as work progresses towards selecting a preferred option for the scheme at the end of 2019, at which further public exhibitions will be held.

Transport Scotland is seeking feedback from members of the public and other stakeholders to help inform the ongoing design development work. We would like to invite you to attend the drop-in sessions, the details of which are provided below

  • Tuesday 28 May 2019, Wyness Hall, 12 noon – 7pm Jackson Street, Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, AB51 3QB
