Millions allocated to transforming transport links in Arbroath should be spent on maintaining the county’s road network instead, it has been argued.
Carnoustie councillor David Cheape, Independent, has branded the £13m A Place For Everyone scheme “no more than a vanity project” as he called for the millions to be reinvested in poor quality roads across Angus.
He said: “Throughout this winter, we are seeing further evidence of the appalling condition of many of our roads throughout the entirety of Angus.
“Rather than spend millions such as this in Arbroath, the money should be directed away from such an unnecessary capital project and used to support the repair and improvement of a legacy of lack of maintenance of our roads infrastructure.
“In doing so the money spent would benefit far greater numbers from within our communities.”
