‘Road damaged by lorries carrying wind turbines’  

Credit:  By David Ewen | Evening Express | 11 Feb 2014 | www.eveningexpress.co.uk ~~

A North-East road has been wrecked by lorries carrying wind turbines.

The regional transport partnership Nestrans has been forced to budget £22,000 – and another £78,000 in reserve – to fix crumbling road edges.

That comes on top of £190,000 shelled out for the same reason on the A920 Colpy to Potts Rayne route last year.

A report said the road had been “damaged by large vehicles carrying wind turbines” which were diverted from the A96 at Inveramsay Bridge, north of Inverurie.

The Nestrans board will be asked to sign off the budget – provided by Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire councils and Transport Scotland – tomorrow.

North-east MSP Richard Baker has been pushing the Scottish Government to make developers pick up the tab.

He said: “It is unacceptable that our councils’ hard-pressed budgets are having to pay such huge bills for these road repairs.”
