Responding to confirmation from the Transport Secretary that the delayed Aberdeen bypass will not be fully open before Christmas, Scottish Liberal Democrat transport spokesperson Mike Rumbles said:
“The Minister has announced so many delays to the opening of the AWPR that he might as well try donning a yellow vest and redirecting traffic himself.
“A bungled agreement with the contractor has kept finished sections of road unopened, while costs have soared.
“The Scottish Government’s handling of the AWPR project has been utterly incompetent. They owe the people of the North East an apology.”
