‘Safety haz­ard’

The Galloway News - - NEWS -

Un­lit bol­lards on a busy Cas­tle Dou­glas road are pos­ing a haz­ard to pedes­tri­ans and mo­torists, Cas­tle Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Coun­cil heard onTues­day night.

Mem­ber Fiona Mc­Gre­gor re­ported that the in­stal­la­tions on Cot­ton Street were no longer work­ing.

“Peo­ple are con­cerned there’s noth­ing to in­di­cate that there are bol­lards in the mid­dle of the road,”she said.

Trea­surer Mar­tin Fort­num said:“The two is­lands there have been like that for months and months.

“We were told when the Co-op was orig­i­nally built that they were put there for chil­dren cross­ing the road and for safety rea­sons. But they have have ne­glected do­ing any­thing and they are now a safety haz­ard.”

CDCC is to ask Dumfries and Gal­loway Coun­cil to make re­pairs.
