DRIVERS are to be given the chance to air their views on how to improve a notorious North-east road.
Aberdeenshire Council has been working towards a route improvement strategy for the A947 Aberdeen to Banff road.
The strategy aims to develop a route that is “fit-for-purpose” to safely connect communities, reduce any potential cause for driver frustration and improve journey times.
Council officers are looking at work previously carried out on accident blackspots, reviewing existing problems and will then compile an appraisal of future options, using the document as part of their business case to secure funding for the works.
A meeting of the infrastructure services committee heard was informed that a series of public consultations will be held in July and August, where motorists will be asked about any particular issues on stretches of the road. Transport strategy manager Mark Skilling stressed there was no funding available for the project as yet.
