Lights get award nom­i­na­tion

The Galloway News - - VOICE OF THE PEOPLE -

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.
