Luncarty Cross Tay Link Road exhibition first in series of consultations on adjusted plans

The first of four public exhibition on the Cross Tay Link Road where local residents were able to inspect the plans and ask questions of the planners.
The first of four public exhibition on the Cross Tay Link Road where local residents were able to inspect the plans and ask questions of the planners.

The first in a string of public consultations on the Cross Tay Link Road  was held yesterday afternoon at Luncarty Memorial Hall.

Officers from Sweco and Perth and Kinross Council answered questions from village residents about the bridge, which will link the adjusted A9 and Bertha Park with the A94 at Scone via Stormontfield across the river, crossing just south of Luncarty.

Public exhibitions will be held today and next week at Scone, Coupar Angus and Perth, with more residents expected to air their views ahead of the formal planning application being submitted to the council in October.

This is the second time public exhibitions have been held, with the last round taking place in 2018. Villagers were able to voice their opinions through online and paper forms at the event which ran from 2pm to 7pm.

The contentious £113 million plans have been revised since then according to lead consultants Sweco.

A spokesperson at the project said: “What’s on show is the designs of the development and there have been some changes.

“These are more finalised plans and we’ve been very involved with the community councils in working towards these.

“We’re taking into consideration residents views where possible.”

Having received dozens of complaints, the proposals have been adjusted since last time.

The council has said the space left behind by realigning the existing A9 will become a shared cycleway and they have addressed fears about the road passing Newmains Steading by relocating thew A94 roundabout.

In the new plans on display, the council has pledged more lanes at the Stormontfield Roundabout to alleviate traffic attending major events at Scone Palace and Perth Racecourse.

Furthermore, to help address fears over pedestrian safety at Scone North, more traffic signal crossings are to be provided and the reduced speed limits will be extended at the Scone gateway.

Should plans be approved in October, the next stage would be issuing compulsory selling orders to landowners, with work not expected to start until around 2021.

There has been controversy over the rote, which will cut through a new 700-property housing estate on the northern edge of Scone.

Today’s exhibition, at the village’s Robert Douglas Memorial Institute, is expected to draw a significant crowd. The event will also run from 2pm to 7pm.
