School Brae Road in Lossiemouth is set to remain closed for a further two weeks until the end of this month.

.

Moray Council shut the route in mid-October to begin building a cycle-friendly traffic light junction which also included pedestrian crossings.

The work was originally scheduled to take six weeks, finishing by December 6.

Lossiemouth Town Councillor Mike Mulholland said: "It's disappointing to hear that. A lot of people have been asking why it's taking so long.

"Some say there are no workmen there a lot of the time."

Residents have long complained about traffic travelling too fast in the School Brae vicinity.

Lossiemouth Community Council contacted the Living Streets organisation two years ago after concerns were raised by two lollipop people that somebody would be seriously injured or killed.

Following an investigation the charity agreed the junction at the bottom of School Brae was unsafe.
