New pedestrian crossing supported at Maryhill Road

During the last year, I have supported the development of plans to improve road safety at the junction of Napiershall Street and Maryhill Road. Ways to address safety concerns were discussed at meetings involving Woodside Community Council, council officers from Land and Environmental Services and police officers. Fears were raised by residents about pedestrians facing an increased risk of injury or accidents when crossing at this busy junction.

In September, funds were approved by Land and Environmental Services for an road safety improvement scheme on Maryhill Road and the Napiershall Street junction. 

The programme of works includes a new traffic signal controlled junction with a full pedestrian green man facility.There are minor alternations to the existing waiting and loading restrictions that will be required to complement the scheme.

The works will take place from 1st November 2014, with anticipated completion by 31st January 2015.
