People who live near the AWPR will have the opportunity to grill the Minister for Transport about concerns regarding the project.
Minister for Transport Humza Yousaf will take questions at an event at The Sanctuary in Cults Parish Church on January 30 from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
Residents and politicians from the North-east have been calling for the meeting since Mr Yousaf was appointed Minister for Transport and the Islands in May this year.
Ross Thomson MSP, who represents the North-east, said: “We wanted the Minister to come up to the North-east and see for himself some of the difficulties that local residents have faced, but also to meet those affected and hear first hand their concerns.
“There are genuine concerns about the impact on the environment, particularly on the tributaries of the River Dee and also over damage to surrounding farmland.
“Clearly with a project of this size, there will always be some problems, but many residents feel that their views have simply been ignored.”
Several community councils have also wanted to speak to Mr Yousaf about some of their issues.
Colin Pike, AWPR spokesman for North Kincardine Rural Community Council, said: “We have asked from the start of this project that there be open dialogue with the residents close to the AWPR.
“I think everyone is aware that the project is running behind and questions have been asked about the cost of the construction so these are some of the issues we will want to ask him.
“People just want answers and I hope he gives us them.”
A Transport Scotland spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that a date has been arranged to meet North-east residents to discuss any concerns that the local community may have about this major infrastructure project.”
