I have recieved the following update from Council Officials regarding the above. I have lobbied hard on behalf of local residents for some time regarding this issue and will continue to keep involved going forward.
” LIBERTON DRIVE UPDATE
An initial consultation has been undertaken to agree the position of the third traffic island. This position has been agreed and we are currently waiting for a timetable, from our design team, for completion of the final detailed design and construction. The construction of this island, and the power connection for the westbound traffic activated sign, would be packaged up with the build outs at the two islands. As soon as I have heard back from my colleagues in the design team regarding the timetable I will advise you accordingly.
A Traffic Regulation Order for the speed limit reduction on Braid Hills Drive has been initiated and the consultation with the statutory bodies has been undertaken. A further consultation with local residents is still to take place and if no objections are brought forward then it is anticipated that the limit would be reduced around September 2015. If objections are received then a report to the Transport and Environment Committee would be required to repel these objections which would delay the implementation of the order.
It would be our intention to undertake further speed monitoring for this scheme as each stage goes live.
Thank you again for your continued interest in this matter. ”
