Protracted delays which have led to upgrade work at Ellon Park and Ride taking several year's to be instigated may finally be seeing some movement in the months ahead.
Speaking on the issue, local councillor Gillian Owen stated: “This long running saga regarding the Phase 2 upgrade at the Park & Ride will soon be going out to Tender so that the work can be undertaken.
“As many of you may remember Phase 2 was agreed in March 2012 and will include additional external waiting facilities and upgrade to turning circle to accommodate 15m vehicles.
"It is a shame that a number of infrastructure projects have had little or no movement due to the Covid-19 pandemic but I hope this update gives residents assurance that Phase 2 is being progressed. "Let’s hope that early in 2021 we will see a marked improvement in the facilities at the Park and Ride, a much valued local amentity.”
