Phase 2 was agreed back in March 2012 and will include additional external waiting facilities and an upgrade to turning circle to accommodate 15m vehicles.

Councillor Owen said, “A number of infrastructure projects have had little or no movement due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the Ellon Park and Ride is one such project.

"But I wanted to give some assurance to local residents that Phase 2 remains on the agenda and will be progressed as soon as it is viable to do so.”

She continued: “This project has had its fair share of issues to overcome, from establishing who owned the land, to a water mains survey that indicated the mains went across the area of the development.

"Now there is a need for the Service to carry out a capability and capacity survey with the market to gauge the current position of the contractors prior to issuing a tender.

"So hopefully we shall see progress soon and I will continue to monitor what is happening.”
