Alan Donnelly – Scottish Conservatives
We want to continue with the Strategic Infrastructure Plan and the City Centre Masterplan which will transform Aberdeen and ensure our economy can continue to thrive.
There is still a considerable amount of work to do on the City Region Deal projects and we need the Scottish Government to get on with the promised rail improvements between Aberdeen, the Central Belt and dualling to Inverurie.
Aberdeen Conservatives delivered the Third Don Crossing after 50 years waiting and we will look carefully at options for a new bridge over the River Dee.
Stephen Flynn – SNP
We need to capitalise on both the AWPR and upgrade of the Haudagain Roundabout by ending decades of political and commuter delays with the building of a new Bridge over the Dee – it’s essential for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians alike.
We also support the dualling of the Berryden Corridor as well as investment in our roads and pavements.
Guy Ingerson – Scottish Green Party
For Greens, housing is our biggest priority in terms of infrastructure.
We want genuinely affordable social housing built and for empty properties to be brought back into use.
Greens will also advocate 10% of the transport budget is allocated to walking and cycling.
Jenny Laing – Scottish Labour
We have put in place a £700 million capital programme for the next five years.
This includes £330m for the new Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, £80m for green energy projects, £59m on roads infrastructure, £50m on digital technology and £33m to support the delivery of the City Centre Masterplan.
In addition to this, Aberdeen Labour is committed to delivering 2,000 new council houses and a further 3,000 affordable homes over the next five years following our partnership agreement with housing developer Places for People.
Ian Yuill – Scottish Liberal Democrats
Aberdeen’s infrastructure has suffered years of underinvestment.
Poor transport links and crumbling roads and pavements need to be tackled to assist Aberdeen’s residents and business community.
The Liberal Democrats are committed to more than doubling investment in road and pavement resurfacing and repairs, and building a new bridge over the River Dee.
We believe our local rail network must be improved and action must be taken to make Aberdeen a more cyclist and pedestrian friendly city.
