Roads chiefs admit to having no concrete strategy for long-term fix of potholed Brechin bypass as reported in TheCourier.co.uk
In one recent incident a motorist had to be rescued from the busy road after a tyre blowout following a pothole strike.
The potentially dangerous episode prompted me to demand action from Scottish transport secretary Michael Matheson as I've campaigned for the section of Dundee to Aberdeen dual carriageway to be permanently sorted for a number of years.
“I’m furious at this response which shows the Scottish Government is continuing to treat the A90 at Brechin as a patchwork piece of dual carriageway.
“I worry about how many serious incidents it will take to prompt Transport Scotland into resurfacing the entire stretch.
“Someone will be seriously injured if these surface issues aren’t addressed permanently and not temporarily by just filling potholes in every year.
“The A90 at Brechin is one of the busiest routes in Scotland, yet it’s being left to rot.
“Currently, the road surface is a danger to motorists and it’s completely unacceptable that their safety is being jeopardised by the lackadaisical attitude of the SNP Government.”
