Written Submissions:

Are you fed up queuing from Tipperty to Balmedie and Balmedie to Tipperty almost regardless of what time you try and make that journey?

Did you know that the dualling of that section of road was due to be completed by the end of 2013 until it was linked to the AWPR project and the funding plans were changed and now it could be delayed until as late as 2018!

Please sign up to this petition and send on to as many people as you can to try and get this critical road improvement project delivered sooner rather than later!



Get it done! Sooner rather than later please

By upgrading this stretch of road a time saving of at least an hour travelling will be gained.

Looking at industry as a whole in Scotland I would imagine that the TAX collected from Aberdeen Business in general along with the Offshore revenue that seems to disappear south should justify the project - Oil Capital of Europe?

This project was first discussed in 1936! I think that that is enough time to talk, now is the time to start work.

I wonder, could the over spend on building The Scottish Parliment Building, have been enough to pay for this stretch of dual carrigeway

Can't keep building new houses and encourage people to live North of Aberdeen without improving the antiquated road structure.

Its a disgrace. Should have been made a dual carriageway years ago.
