MSP Welcomes Electronic Speed Limit Signs For Memsie

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed a response from Aberdeenshire Council that Memsie is to get electronic speed limit warning signs during the current financial year.

The MSP met with local residents and roads officials in Memsie last October to hear first hand of concerns about road safety and speeding traffic. Mr Stevenson accepted a petition signed by a huge number of local residents which he passed to Aberdeenshire Council.

Now, in a letter from the Head of Roads, Mr Stevenson has been advised that road markings at the Memsie junction have been refreshed and that arrangements are in hand to install electronic speed warning signs in the village on the B9032, following a traffic survey which confirmed residents’ views that there was a speed problem.

Mr Stevenson commented:

Following the site meeting with residents late last year, Aberdeenshire Council agreed to carry out a survey of traffic speed in response to the concerns expressed. This has confirmed that there is a problem with traffic not observing the 40 mile per hour limit on the B9032.

The Head of Roads has confirmed to me that electronic speed limit warning signs will be installed during this financial year and that these arrangements are in hand. In other communities where I have seen these signs operate they do seem to be effective in slowing traffic and I hope that they will be equally effective in Memsie.”
