New crossing to be installed


Work was due to get underway yesterday (Monday) to install a new toucan crossing in Perth.

The crossing on Charlotte Street is part of the Spaces for People programme to help with social distancing on streets across the region. Work is expected to last three weeks. A council spokespers­on said the new crossing would “aid the movement of pedestrian­s and cyclists between the North Inch and the city centre”.

The added: “Installati­on will start on Monday, July 13 for three weeks under two-way temporary traffic lights with temporary pedestrian crossings.

“During the installati­on, we will be working with the contractor to control the traffic signals in and around the city centre area to help minimise disruption.”
