12 May 2014

Residents and businesses in Largs will have the opportunity to learn more about a proposed 20mph speed limit trial for the A78 through the town, and to provide input into a public consultation on the matter.

An information and consultation drop-in session will take place to enable the community to voice their views and ask representatives from trunk road operator Scotland TranServ and Transport Scotland questions at the event:

What  : Information & Consultation Drop-In Session
Where: Largs Library
When : Monday, 19th May 1300 – 1930

The consultation follows a recent review carried out by Transport Scotland into road safety and speed limits across the Scottish trunk roads network. The plans are part of a wider programme of measures to promote the safe and efficient use of Scotland’s roads.

Vincent Tait, Scotland TranServ’s Road Safety Manager said:

“The safety of our employees, of the motoring public and of pedestrians is of utmost importance to Scotland TranServ. That is why we are happy to support our client, Transport Scotland in making our roads safer. It is important that people in Largs are able to provide input into this trial scheme, and that they can play their part in making this important trunk road running through the middle of their town safer, while considering the wider needs of local business and the community.”

Scotland TranServ manages and maintains the A78 on behalf of Transport Scotland.
