Refurbishing works have been planned at the crossings.
Refurbishing works have been planned at the crossings.

Refurbishment work to three pedestrian crossings in Arbroath is set to start next week.

Work will begin at the crossing at the Saltire Centre on the A92 Montrose Road from Monday, November 14.

During a scheduled two weeks of work, Tayside Contracts and Siemens Mobility will then work at the crossing at A933 Cairnie Street, at the shops near Lochlands Street and then on Keptie Road at Angus College.

The project involves tracking across the carriageway to install new ducts and cables, refurbishment of existing traffic signals, as well as associated localised footway works at the following three crossings

Lane closures will be in place at each location during the work. Temporary traffic lights will operate when the existing permanent lights are disconnected.

Pedestrian and vehicle movements will be affected during these necessary works and road users should expect delays during peak times.

Alternative and dedicated routes for pedestrians will be clearly signed and assistance with crossing the road will be available for pedestrians who require it.

Several junctions will be completely closed to vehicles while work takes place at each crossing.

These are:

· Cairnie Street/St. Vigeans Road Junction

· Cairnie Street/Russell Street Junction

· A92/Montrose Road Junction opposite the Eastern Cemetery gates

Diversion routes for local traffic and public transport will operate while these junctions are closed.

Local traffic heading to and from Burnside Drive and the town centre is asked to avoid Cairnie Street if possible for the duration of the works.

Access will be maintained wherever possible for those affected by the works.
