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.”
