Response

1. It is the responsibility of our Operating Company Amey to respond to incidents on the A1 Trunk Road. I can confirm that they received 1 call from theTraffic Scotland Customer Care Line. This was reported to the supervisor who subsequently contacted the Traffic Management crew to instruct them to investigate the site. Annex A is the call log and incident report.

I can confirm that Traffic Scotland have no other records of any incidents on the A1 at that time.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance Transport Scotland does not have the information you have requested in relation to Police Scotland. Therefore we are refusing your request under the exception at regulation 10(4)(a) of the EIRs. The reasons why that exception applies are that Transport Scotland do not hold Police Scotland records.

However, you may wish to contact Police Scotland at foi@scotland.pnn.police.uk who may be able to help you.

2. Please refer to point one of this response.

3. Please refer to point one of this response.

4 and 5. Our Operating Company, Amey did not notify anyone of this incident as they had operatives on site that could address the issue quickly when notified. The road did not need to be closed. The cone was removed and call closed within 20mins of being notified. Amey Customer Care logged the call at 23:44. The call was closed at 00:05.

6. Please refer to point one of this response.
