From news.gov.scot, yesterday:

‘Port of Montrose grant to cut thousands of lorry journeys. Montrose Port Authority lands £1.5m Scottish Government grant. More freight will be taken off Scotland’s roads and transported by sea thanks to a £1.5m Ports Mode Shift Grant from the Scottish Government to Montrose Port Authority (MPA). Over a five-year period, it is expected the move will deliver environmental benefits worth £5.2m through the removal of 1.26m tonnes of freight from our roads and 86,000 HGV lorry journeys in the process.’

Retired and resigned but still academic, Professor John Robertson, said, seconds ago:

‘This intelligent use of government funds to improve conditions on our roads will surely reduce the stress, pollution and anxiety which contribute to our still too-high level of road traffic accidents.’

Professor Robertson has declared his membership of the SNP and admits never having been in Montrose.

    Its a beutiful wee town, but has a major problem, coastal erosion, here’s a wee film from Anthony Baxter of “You’ve been Trumped” fame, things have deteriorated since it was made in 09.

    Who’s head has been super-imposed upon Superman’s shoudders? – That’s never Humza’s face?? – The article is certainly carrying very good news. Impressive to see the New Scotland using her ‘smarts’ to find clever solutions to perennial problems. PS – Montrose is a rather lovely place.
