Aberdeenshire SNP councillors serving communities along the A90 have welcomed today’s announcement by Finance Secretary John Swinney that the Aberdeen bypass has been given the go-ahead.
“After many years of Labour/Liberal Democrat procrastination and prevarication over this project, the SNP Government has demonstrated the professionalism and decisiveness required to bring this project to fruition for the wider benefit of the North-east Scotland.”
Peterhead South & Cruden councillor Stephen Smith added:
“This is a landmark decision for the farming, fishing and food processing industries for which Aberdeenshire is rightly famous.”
