Start of £14m Arbroath active travel scheme delayed by two months

“Contractual hiccups” have caused a two-month delay to the start of a £14 million active travel project in Arbroath.

The Courier newspaper reports partners in the project to transform the A92 running through the Angus town say they remain 100% committed to getting it underway as soon as possible.

This month was due to see work in the transformation of the dual carriageway between Gayfield Park and Guthrie Port.

In October, councillors gave the green light to a January start on the build after learning Sustrans would be picking up the tab for a £1m-plus cost rise.

It has now emerged that the earliest start date will be mid-March.

That is the result of what council leader Beth Whiteside said was the need to “dot i’s and cross t’s” on the final contract papers.
