North Angus Growth Opportunity

The Mercury Programme (Clean Growth) Logo

The North Angus Growth Opportunity project will focus on enabling infrastructure to support the future development plans for Montrose and the wider North Angus Area. This project includes plans to enhance rail, road and sea links to Montrose.

The project plans to investigate improvements to the transport infrastructure links between Montrose and the A90, including opportunities to incorporate green civil engineering innovations. Potential innovations include the use of waste products in the road’s construction and opportunities for carbon capture.

The North Angus Growth Opportunity project will also investigate potential improvements to rail links. In support of Scotland’s ambition to grow the amount of freight on the rail network by 2024, this project will explore the opportunity to reopen the disused railhead at Montrose.
