F606 mmhm
M822 an a lot of this Bre- Brechin folk eh but eh they, they found oot aboot them gaein to Montrose so they were askin them if they would come up to Laurencekirk because it's dual carriageway aw the wey tae Laurencekirk,
F606 mmhm
M822 an it'd be quicker comin tae Laurencekirk than [inaudible] tae Montrose
F823 Aye, cause the road's nae so good.
M824 //Aye.//

F606 //Beeching, yeah.// //Yeah, something like that.//
M822 //Nine-, nineteen sixty-eight.//
F606 uh-huh
M822 mmhm
F606 Cause I saw they were gonna open the one from Edinburgh down to the Borders again, they were
M822 Aye.
F606 cause that was another one that went then an
F823 mmhm
F606 I think they tore up the lines on that one so that'll be //a big job, [inaudible]//
F823 //This is//
M824 //Oh right.//
F823 the trouble, ye see, if they've, if they've done aw that it's a lot o work eh puttin it back again.

M824 There was a lot o railway lines werena used enough,
F823 No, //this is it. I mean it's//
M824 //but// //if it, somebody had had a richt think to themselves, "Well, we could dae awa//
F823 //the, the, the public need to be usin it, usin it//
M824 wi a certain amount o them //an keep//
M822 //Aye.//

M824 Yeah, yeah, it opens up a great lot o land for development.
F606 mmhm
M822 An then they shove the green belt farther oot,
F606 Yeah.
M822 and then ye need anither bypass //[laugh]//
F606 //mmhm//
F823 //Well it's the same//
M822 //cause, cause Anderson// Drive used to be eh, eh, the bypass in Aiberdeen.
F823 That's right.
