Future of Elgin's transport network to be discussed

Press Release   •   Aug 06, 2017 10:00 BST

COUNCILLORS in Moray will this week discuss the future of Elgin’s transport network.

Members will decide on Wednesday whether to approve the Elgin Transport Strategy which, if implemented, could see improvements like the widening of footpaths and cycle lanes, junction improvements, redesign of Elgin bus station and the creation of a new railway crossing for vehicles.

The recommendations within the strategy are split into short, medium and long term plans, and are designed to develop the network in line with Elgin growing.

Public drop-in sessions, questionnaires, social media and stakeholder consultation events were all used to gather feedback from those who travel within or through Elgin, as well as from developers and community bodies.

The meeting will be broadcast live from 9.30am via the Moray Council website and the draft transport strategy is also available online.

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 95,510 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in  Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
