Aberdeen bypass: Transport Minister Keith Brown outlines bypass details

Transport Minister Keith Brown has been outlining details of the planned Aberdeen bypass to potential contractors.

The 28-mile road was given the green light by Scottish ministers in 2009, but was delayed by legal action.

Previously predicted to cost £347m, that has risen to more than £650m.

Work will not start until next year, and is expected to be completed in 2018. The project could bring 14,000 jobs and £6bn of investment.
