Junction improvement works to one of the busiest roundabouts in Elgin

Press Release   •   Jan 30, 2018 19:09 GMT

Junction improvement works to one of the busiest roundabouts in Elgin is starting at the end of next month.

Traffic lights are being introduced to the junction of Hay Street, Northfield Terrace and South Street which is currently a mini-roundabout.

The improvement is a result of consultation with the public on the new Elgin Transport Strategy, which identified the junction as requiring the change.

Diversions will be in place as each branch of the roundabout is closed for the installation works to be completed. Once installed, the junction will change to a crossroads, with ‘smart’ traffic lights that can be programmed to alter traffic flows at peak times.

The works are expected to take a maximum of 12 weeks to complete. Diversions will be clearly signposted for the duration, and maps indicating the temporary routes will be on the council’s website here.

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. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
