Traffic Management changes affecting Central Terrace, Glasgow Street and Upland Road

Petition details

Banning the right hand turn out of Central Terrace onto Glasgow Street & creating a roundabout at the intersection of Glasgow Street & Upland Road. This is a very dangerous turn and the safety of all people both driving up the hill and turning from Central Terrace into the traffic needs to be considered. The position of the pedestrian crossing at the Upland Road intersection also needs addressing.

Background information

Cars tend to speed around this area and as a result the turn and crossing which already have poor visibility are extremely dangerous. As cars are becoming quieter the risks are increased. At certain times of the year sun strike is also an issue at the pedestrian crossing.
