A North-east MSP has urged constituents to play their part in choosing the design for a new £24 million flyover.
Mairi Gougeon, MSP for Angus North and Mearns, has appealed for the public to get involved with choosing the design for the Laurencekirk flyover.
Draft designs for the grade-separated junction will be put on public display in St Laurence Hall, in the town, on October 30 between noon and 7pm.
Mrs Gougeon said: “The fact that we are moving onto stage two of this process is very encouraging.
“It underlines the commitment to get this flyover built.
“I know, given how long some people have been campaigning for this new junction, that there is a frustration that it can’t be built overnight and I share that frustration – the sooner the better.
“But it has to be done properly and the public must be given a key role in choosing an option that will work best for the people who will use it on a daily basis and for those living next to the new junction.
“That is why it’s important for people to come along to this event or to scrutinise the plans online and have their say on this much-needed road upgrade.”
The feedback from the event will be used to progress on a preferred option next year.
It has a potential start date of 2021, due to a need for extensive design and consultation.
