Speeding concerns raised about Inverbervie town centre

Inverbervie
Inverbervie

Calls have been made for traffic calming measures in Inverbervie to improve road safety.

Residents have claimed that motorists have ignored the speed limit as they pass through the town for decades.

They claim cars and lorries are frequently spotted going along King Street and Montrose Road too quickly.

Now councillor Leigh Wilson is calling for the local authority to take action to protect pedestrians.

He said: “Slowing the traffic through the town centre will have added benefits in making it a more enjoyable experience, so people want to come and do their shopping on our high street.

“The whole community benefits from that.”

Mr Wilson has been backed by the SNP’s candidate for West Aberdeenshire and Kincrdine, Fergus Mutch.

He said: “I’ve written to the council and to Police Scotland, asking that they review existing measures and how road safety can best be improved.”

An Aberdeenshire Council spokeswoman said: “Officers will review any concerns raised by the public and any interventions will be considered in accordance with council policy on these matters.

“Aberdeenshire Council will continue to work with partners, including Police Scotland, to reinforce road safety messages through appropriate education and enforcement measures”.
