Decision Taken on Wellmeadow Traffic Lights

Perth & Kinross Council Update on the Wellmeadow, Blairgowrie Traffic Light Trial

During the two-week trial switch-off of the traffic signals at Blairgowrie’s Wellmeadow, Perth & Kinross Council's Roads Team recorded vehicle speeds and monitored travel patterns in the town in partnership with the local Community Council. 

Pedestrian activity at the temporary crossings which were installed to facilitate the trial was also monitored. 

No significant traffic management or road safety issues have arisen to date. 

Public consultation has revealed widespread support for the new traffic arrangement and the lower speed limit. 

As a result, the traffic signals will remain switched-off and the temporary junction layouts and crossing facilities will remain in place until the Council has an opportunity to formalise these measures.

Here is the recording:
