Traffic calming measures could be introduced in an effort to make a north-east village “much safer for all residents”.
Buchan Area Committee had been asked to consider introducing two speed cushions on The Street in Rora to slow down traffic.
Previous efforts to reduce speeds, such as the installation of flashing 30mph signage, are said to have had “minimal effect”.
Speaking at the virtual meeting, councillor Dianne Beagrie said: “This is most welcome as it will help with the speeding and make it much safer for all the residents.”
A study recently found that most drivers were speeding past the point at an average of 43mph in either direction.
Engineer for the Buchan area, Julie Elder, told councillors said: “Traffic within Rora was found to be travelling at speeds significantly above the 30mph speed limit.”
The proposed speed cushion installation would require The Street to be permanently lit, which Ms Elder said local residents had been consulted on.
Longside and District Community Council was also consulted and said it welcomed “any measures to be implemented to reduce speed through The Street”.
There will now be a four-week statutory consultation involving emergency services, community councils, the Road Haulage Association and other bodies.
This will be followed by a 21-day public consultation.
