SALMOND SOLVES MYSTERY OF THE WHISTLING ROAD

MP for Gordon, Alex Salmond, has unearthed the explanation behind the  eerie whistling sound experienced by road users on a section of the B9093 Strichen to Mintlaw road.

Mr Salmond's inquiries revealed that the road in question is composed of an experimental surface implemented as part of the council's drive to reduce Co2 emissions.

The stretch will be monitored throughout the year, and will have no adverse effects upon road performance or safety.

Mr Salmond said:

"Many of my constituents have written to me regarding this peculiar matter, and I myself have often pondered the genesis of the celestial-sounding symphony coming from beneath my tires. 

"I was happy to investigate, and delighted to learn of the cause behind it. I'm sure that a definitive explanation into the exact cause of the sound will be disclosed in due course."
