§ Mr. Crawford
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the concern being expressed by residents of Precinct Street, Coupar Angus, over the slow progress over the reconstruction of the Damhead Bridge section of the A94 Perth-Aberdeen road near Coupar Angus; and if he will take steps to expedite this work.114W
§ Mr. William Ross
I am aware of the local concern. A94 is, however, a principal road, and improvements on it are matters for Perth and Kinross Joint County Council as local highway authority. For my part, I have accepted in principle the improvement of the Dam-head Bridge section as suitable for grant-aid.
