Lights get award nomination
Springholm’s controversial traffic lights are in the running for an award.
The signals, which were installed in December, are designed to change to red if an approaching vehicle is travelling above the 30mph speed limit.
And that has seen them shortlisted for the Scottish Transport Awards.
The lights have attracted a string of complaints from drivers, who claim they are changing to red for lawabiding motorists while some people ignore them.
Scotland TranServ were this week carrying out work in a bid to resolve the problem.
The scheme is in the running for the award for the most effective road safety, traffic management and enforcement project. It’s also been shortlisted for the most innovative transport project of the year prize.
