Concerns aired on Aberdeen transport project delays

North east business leaders have signed an open letter to Scotland's transport minister over fears about delays to projects including the Aberdeen bypass.

The letter states the lack of progress over the planned bypass is a major concern and frustration.

Those who have supported the letter to Stewart Stevenson include the chamber of commerce and harbour board.

A Transport Scotland spokeswoman said they were fully committed to investing in the north east infrastructure.

However she said a number of factors - including a legal challenge to the bypass - have meant significant delays to the timetable.

The bypass is aimed at creating a fast link to the north, west and south of Aberdeen.
