RoadSense - Stop the Nonsense!
27/08/11 11:16 Filed in: Granite Chips
In less than 24 hours more than 500 people have signed a petition
urging William Walton and RoadSense to abandon their appeal, which could delay the start of work on the Aberdeen bypass by at least another nine months. The RoadSense - Stop the Nonsense
petition was started by Aberdeen businessman Charles Innes.
“The ongoing delays in proceeding with the Aberdeen AWPR have created a ridiculous situation which has gone on long enough,” he says.Until the Aberdeen bypass is finally built, this bridge – opened in 1725 and the first single carriageway road section you encounter driving from Europe – will remain the only trunk road link to Europe’s energy capital! That is a national disgrace.
“Like many other small business owners and concerned citizens, I am angry and frustrated by the continual delays to this much needed major piece of infrastructure that will unlock significant road and transport improvements.
“By participating in this petition you will be telling William Walton and Roadsense that you are fed up with the situation and want the AWPR built.
“Their actions are threatening Aberdeen City and Shire’s economy and are not in the interests of the majority of people who are affected by the current gridlock.”
FOOTNOTE: The RoadSense court action against the bypass has, so far, cost the public purse £1.1 million
according to the Scottish Transport Secretary Keith Brown.
