Moray’s MSP has held a meeting with Transport Scotland, Police Scotland and Amey to discuss the issues around road safety along the stretch of the A96 at Brodie. 

Concerns were raised by local residents with Mr Lochhead during his summer surgery tour, including over the speed of traffic through the village and the layout of signage and road markings.

Transport Scotland has now committed to carrying out a speed survey and Amey will review signage.

Commenting on the meeting Lochhead said:

“Many local residents contacted me expressing concern following the recent spate of road traffic accidents at Brodie on the A96.  

“I was grateful to the authorities for joining me at Brodie to discuss the issues and to allow me to convey the many concerns and views expressed by local residents about a number of issues such as speeding and roads signage.

“Concerns understandably escalated over the summer when there were three road traffic accidents in a very short period of time and local residents and businesses are keen to see action taken to improve road safety given that the busy A96 runs through the village.

“The meeting was very constructive with the authorities committing to a new speed survey and also review the roads signage. Various factors can be behind road accidents including driver error but I very much look forward to seeing the outcome of the review that will now be conducted as a result of our meeting and the concerns expressed by my constituents.”
