  • Asked by: Lewis Macdonald, MSP for North East Scotland, Scottish Labour
  • Date lodged: 19 February 2020
  • Current status: Answered by Michael Matheson on 2 March 2020


To ask the Scottish Government, further to the Transport Scotland news release of 19 February 2020, AWPR first anniversary, whether it will publish the data collected regarding HGV traffic on the A92 between Stonehaven and Blackdog before and after the opening of the AWPR.


Transport Scotland provided the initial data snapshot to support the anniversary news release which highlights that the AWPR is making progress towards achieving one of its objectives which is:

- To provide traffic relief (including the removal of long distance heavy goods vehicle traffic) on the existing congested A90 route through, and to the south of, Aberdeen

It is the intention to publish the Initial Evaluation in the coming weeks. It will present further information and data, giving an early indication on how the AWPR Project is performing.

Transport Scotland will always consider requests for transport data and respond as appropriate.
