A North-east councillor has stepped up his calls for safety improvements along a “notorious” stretch of road.
Troup councillor Hamish Partridge wants work to be carried out on the B9031 Sandhaven to Rosehearty road to make it safer for motorists.
Cllr Partridge said: “There have been fatalities there and it has always been a notorious corner for accidents.
“When people come round the corner, if there is nothing coming you can get round it, but if something else is coming or you don’t know about it, you can go into that sunken bit and it throws the car.
“I think it is time we did a thorough investigation there to see what can be done.”
Derek Murray, Aberdeenshire Council’s roads manager for the Banff and Buchan area, said: “Following a previous review of this section of road, we erected ‘bend warning’ and ‘reduce speed now’ signs in December 2017.”
Further consideration is being given to applying slow markings on the road, although Mr Murray confirmed there was no major improvement works at the bend planned.
