Aberdeen bypass faces Supreme Court roadblock
April 5 2012Aberdeen bypass are to take their fight to the UKs Supreme Court following an earlier decision by Scottish judges to reject their appeal.
Road Sense has been acting as a roadblock to the scheme since 2009 when the 28 mile route was granted approval by Scottish Ministers.
It has since been subject to a long running and increasingly bitter battle between proponents who claim it will ease congestion and opponents who suggest that the selection process for the £400m schemes route was “fundamentally unfair and unjust”.
A Scottish government spokesman said: "There have now been two clear and comprehensive court verdicts giving the green light to the road, and ministers believe that the patience of people in the north east is wearing thin.
"We want to get on and build this vital road as quickly as possible.
"The Scottish government remains totally committed to the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route being built as soon as possible."
