SNP MSP & Councillor Welcome Bypass Progress

Moray’s MSP Richard Lochhead and SNP Councillor for Fochabers Lhanbryde, Anita McDonald, have welcomed the opening of the first section of the Fochabers Bypass between Cowfords and Coul Brae.

The section was opened by the SNP’s Minister for Housing & Transport, Keith Brown MSP.

Richard Lochhead MSP said:

“I am delighted that the Fochabers and Mosstodloch Bypass is making excellent progress towards completion and the opening today of the section bypassing Mosstodloch is an especially major milestone.

“In total the investment is over 30 million pounds over a 5 kilometre stretch, which is already demonstrating its value with a big emphasis on improved safety.

“The workforce on the project at all levels are really pushing on with it and the full completion is well on target for early 2012 - now less than 6 months away.”

Fochabers Lhanbryde SNP Councillor Anita McDonald said:

“The opening of this first section is great news for the whole community. The route past Mosstodloch in particular brings a major improvement in road safety and improved access to the junctions in the village which have been very difficult to get in and out of in the past.

“Safety for pedestrians and children using the buses in particular will be much improved, which is an issue I have been campaigning on for some time. It is great to see this major investment bearing fruit.”
