Plans for two new signalised crossings on the A96 have been announced to improve pedestrian safety in Elgin and support active travel.

The £200,000 investment from Transport Scotland will 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 13 September between 11am and 7pm at the Elgin Town Hall where plans for the future crossings shall be displayed.  

Commenting on the new crossings, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative 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.”
