Dear Sir / Madam



As you may be aware, Transport Scotland has been progressing with the design development and assessment of route options for the section of the A96 to be dualled between East of Huntly and Aberdeen.

Following the initial route options public exhibitions in October 2018, we held further engagement events in May 2019 which presented the remaining options being taken forward to the next stage of design. In October 2020, a design update taking account of feedback received at these earlier events was circulated to interested parties and made available on the project website. The preferred option has been chosen following detailed assessment and design work and takes account of feedback received from local communities and other interested parties.

We had planned to hold a public exhibition to announce the preferred option for the scheme, however as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic we are not currently able to hold face to face public exhibitions. We are therefore running a virtual exhibition from 12 noon on Monday 21 December 2020, with a feedback period running to 15 February 2021.

The virtual exhibition and links to the downloadable material can be accessed at the following Transport Scotland webpage:


Anyone wanting to arrange a chat with the project team as they would have done were face-to-face events permitted should contact the Thainstone project office at 01467 672 516 during normal working hours. If you have any specific accessibility requirements, or would like a hard copy, the preferred option leaflet and the exhibition panels can be made available on request in an appropriate format by contacting the project team at [email protected]

Further information on the scheme is available on the Transport Scotland project webpage: transport.gov.scot/A96EHA    

Yours faithfully,

David Burt

Project Manager
