A councillor has written to Transport Scotland urging it to take action at a problem junction on the A90.
Since 2010 there have been at least six crashes on the A90 southbound exit to Newtonhill – including a car that flipped and landed in the garden of a property neighbouring the road.
Councillor Ian Mollison, who represents the area, wrote to the body back in October 2015 about the “worrying” number of vehicles that have crashed on the bend and has now written again for an update.
He said: “There’s more and more accidents that have been happening.
“Whatever the reason, people keep coming off the road. It puts people in danger. “It’s not as if it’s an unknown danger and it’s happening too often.”
A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “Road safety is of paramount importance to the Scottish Government.
“We assess the safety performance of the trunk road network on an annual basis.
“We have recently undertaken our annual assessment of the network but the A90 Newtonhill has not been identified as an area for further investigation.
“We have received correspondence outlining local concerns regarding recent accidents at this location and are liaising with Police Scotland.”
