A campaign to repair a section of the A90 to “biker-friendly” standard has been successful.
North East Conservative MSP Liam Kerr asked the transport secretary to start work on a badly pothole-pocked section of the Dundee to Aberdeen road between the A935 and B966 turn-offs.
The Scottish Conservative announced the success during a visit to the iconic Netherton Cottage nearby.
The former family home of Harley-Davidson co-founder William C Davidson will be visited by more than 1,000 bikers on a pilgrimage in July.
Mr Kerr said: “Transport Scotland has responded to my calls for significant maintenance works along this section of the A90.
“It’s going to be just in time for the Harley-Davidson in the City event, which is one of the biggest annual events in the area. I thank the agency and transport secretary for promptly looking into the problem.”
The Harley-Davidson in the City event on July 13 will celebrate Brechin’s connection to the Davidson family.
A ride-out will start from Brechin Castle at noon and pass through the centre of the town before doing a tour of the surrounding countryside and returning via Netherton Cottage. The bikes will then descend on Brechin.
Live music, entertainment and trade stands will be provided for bikers, locals and visitors alike.
