Reduced speed limits?Post in Infrastructure by Tina Hartley
Representations from the community to Garve and District Community Council have resulted in a response from Transport Scotland
Following comments via our on-line community hub and representations to our Community Councillors the GDCC contacted Michael Matheson MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, about the A835 Trunk Road in Garve.
Mr Matheson says
We are not aware of any change in the accident rate, mean speed, or the number of junctions and accesses in the area, or other material change since the review was undertaken that would lead us to revisit the findings of the Speed Limit Review.We are also currently engaged with Network Rail on reviewing the risk to vehicles and trains due to the proximity of road and rail and expect to bring forward in the coming year a scheme to install some lengths of crash barrier between the two on the eastern approach to the village.
