Councillors Welcome A90 Hatton Speed Limit Review & Stirling Village Safety Measures

>> 24 April 2017

Peterhead South & Cruden SNP councillor Stephen Smith has welcomed commitments from BEAR Scotland that the speed limit on the A90 through Hatton will be reviewed. BEAR have also said they intend commence design works this summer on increased pedestrian safety measures at Stirling Village for installation in the autumn.

Commenting, Cllr Stephen Smith said:

“These commitments from BEAR Scotland are very welcome. I am aware that the speed limit on the A90 going through Hatton has been an issue for quite some time and has been raised with me on many occasions by local residents. I am pleased that BEAR have now committed to a review of the speed limit and I look forward to this being done swiftly.

“The safety of pedestrians crossing the A90 at Stirling Village has been another cause for concern and myself and my Ward colleague Cllr Stuart Pratt have been pleased to support Boddam Community Council in their efforts to get improvements.

“This is now in the works plan and BEAR have committed to starting the design scheme for safety enhancements for pedestrians.”

Cllr Stuart Pratt added:

“These are very welcome developments in the short term. Longer term, I want to see the A90 upgraded from north of Ellon through to Peterhead with particular attention to the Toll of Birness junction being made safer. I believe this is achievable with the study being done by NESTRANS and will continue to campaign for better transport links, both road and rail, north from Aberdeen and Ellon to Peterhead.”
