Work to start on new spine road

Work is due to start on the new spine road at the south side of the town.

The road will create a new connection between Hill Street, River Street and Ferry Street work is due to start next Tuesday (October 14) on the first phase.

This will see the route from Ferry Street to Glaxo-SmithKline, on Cobden Street, improve.

Scottish Enterprize has awarded Angus Council £0.9 million to improve the access to Glaxo.

The second phase will better the access to Montrose Port.

Councillor Bill Duff: “I think the road a good thing. There are companies, such as renewable energy companies, that want to invest in the south side of Montrose and the port area. If the road access is better, it will make Montrose seem more viable for them.”
