Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP)

5. To ask the Scottish Government when ministers last met representatives of Aberdeen City Council and what issues were discussed. (S4O-03090)



Meeting of the Parliament 02 April 2014 : Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Maureen Watt A recent report by Audit Scotland found that a fundamental principle of good governance is councillors and officers operating in clearly defined and understood roles—an understanding that is not the case in Aberdeen City Council. What steps can be taken to ensure that the people of Aberdeen are prop...

Meeting of the Parliament 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Maureen Watt (Aberdeen South and North Kincardine) (SNP) I am pleased to take part in the debate not only because of my role as convener of the cross-party group on Malawi, but to highlight the sterling work that is being done in projects in my constituency and in other projects about which I have recently learned.

Scotland has never been good ...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Convener (Maureen Watt) Good morning, everyone. Welcome to the 10th meeting in 2014 of the Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee. I remind everybody to switch off their mobile devices, as they affect the broadcasting system. Some committee members may, however, be consulting committee papers on their tablets.

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Convener There are no more questions on aviation and airports, so we move on to the Caledonian sleeper franchise.



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Convener The problems at the Rest and Be Thankful on the A83, which you have touched on, seem to be regularly mentioned in news bulletins, especially when there has been heavy rain. You have also referred to the opening of the diversionary route. Each time there is a slip, we hear that engineers and surveyor...

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Convener You also mentioned the major trunk road projects—the M8 from Baillieston to Newhouse, the AWPR and the dualling of the A9—which I understand are all at the procurement stage. Are they going to be phased, or will they all happen at the same time? Are the same companies bidding for the contracts?

Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Convener Thank you.

You mentioned various parts of the road network throughout Scotland that are undergoing major resurfacing and upgrading. However, a recent report has highlighted the deterioration of the lines on the roads. Is anything being done about that?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Convener Even when a road is resurfaced, you can wait months and months before the white lines are replaced. Can they not be replaced as part of the resurfacing?



Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee 26 March 2014 : Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Convener Thank you. We will move on to active travel.
