Adjustments to be made to Dingwall’s 20mph Spaces for People scheme

A new road layout introduced in Dingwall to allow better physical distancing will be amended.

Highland Council has introduced various changes to towns as part of the Spaces for People programme, designed to create safe spaces for pedestrians, cyclists and shoppers as a result of coronavirus.

As part of the project, a traffic island was created in the 20mph zone in Back Road.

However, following consultation with locals, it will now be moved approximately 30ft to give drivers a clearer line of sight towards the Strathpeffer Road junction and improved visibility on approach.

The council’s head of infrastructure Colin Howell said: “Following installation of the traffic island on the Back Road we have received some comments and concerns and we are making  changes in response to this feedback.

“This proves that our process of rapid roll-out and reacting to comment is working and we are thankful for the feedback and encourage engagement with all of our interventions both in Dingwall and across the Highlands.”

Mr Howell said that in isolation, 20mph signs are not sufficient to reduce traffic speeds and change driver behaviour which is why traffic management measures are vital.

All Dingwall’s traffic management measures will be reviewed following a two-week bedding in period.
