CH2M HILL will work with a Scotland transportation agency to study options for a highway intended to give drivers access to the town of Laurencekirk, located in the northeastern portion of the country.
The company will use the Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance and the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges to evaluate problems that have previously been resolved and best practices for completing future issues, CH2M HILL said Wednesday.
“The Scottish Government is committed to working with Nestrans and Aberdeenshire Council to improve the A90 at Laurencekirk. The appointment of consultants to take forward the appraisal and design works, which we are part-funding, is an important milestone in that work and will help determine a robust case for a preferred option for accessing Laurencekirk," said Keith Brown, minister for transport and veterans.
