Two roads in the Montrose area have been identified as among the most dangerous in Scotland in a new report.

The report by the Road Safety Foundation (RSF)said both the A937 Laurencekirk to Montrose road and the A935 Brechin to Montrose are two of the most dangerous roads in the country.

The report looked at figures from 2011 to 2013.

Campaigners have been striving to get a flyover where the A937 road meets the A90 dual carriageway for more than 10 years.

This year the Scottish Government’s roads body for Aberdeenshire, Nestrans, declared a grade-separated junction as its preferred option for improving the blackspot.

However, the Scottish Government has said it is “too early” to set a timescale for the flyover.

The realignment of a chicane at the Mill of Dun bend on the A935 to make it safer for traffic was finally finished in June.

The work was meant to be carried out in 2012 as part of a three-phase £1.7 million project by Angus Council to improve the road.
