The new signalised crossings on West Road and South College Street have been designed to improve pedestrian safety in the town and support active travel.

A public exhibition on the traffic measures will take place in Elgin Town Hall to share information about the £200,000 Transport Scotland project.

The investment would see the installation of a new crossing on West Road located near Dr Grays Hospital which will help improve access to and from the hospital and assist secondary school pupils across the A96. 

The second crossing point will be at South College Street where a current School Crossing Patrol operates.

A public information exhibition is due to be held on Wednesday September 13 between 11am and 7pm at the town hall where plans for the future crossings shall be displayed. 

BEAR Scotland’s north east representative Andy Thompson said: “We’re pleased to announce the £200,000 crossings for the A96 in Elgin, which will be a huge improvement to pedestrian safety in the town. 

“We are looking forward to welcoming the public to the information exhibition in Elgin next month and answering any queries they may have.”
