MSP Visits Rora Traffic Calming Measures

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson will inspect the traffic calming measures put in place in the village of Rora at 2.00pm on Friday 28 April.

Mr Stevenson lent his backing to the local Community Association who had been lobbying for measures for some time. The village is situation on an unclassified road but is a popular thoroughfare for traffic coming from the west to the St Fergus Gas Terminal.

Among the measures recently installed which residents say have made a difference are new signage, road markings and an electronic speed warning sign.

Mr Stevenson commented:

I am pleased to see these measures in action at first hand and I am delighted to hear from local people that they are making a difference to traffic speed in the village.

While Rora may not be on a main road, the problem of speeding traffic was nevertheless a very real one, as the traffic survey confirmed. I was therefore pleased to be able to lend my backing to calls from local people and the Rora Community Association for measures to be put in place to tackle this.”
