West Dunbartonshire Council have thanked motorists and pedestrians for their patience during works to set up a trial of a new road layout, traffic signalling and kerb lines near the Smollett Fountain in Alexandria.
The Smollett Fountain, the Vale of Leven’s best known landmark, stands at the junction of Bank Street and Main Street.
Most of the new set up is due to finish this week, and the temporary measures will then be in place for a trial period of approximately six weeks from June 7.
The Council say the trial is important because it offers the opportunity to test the scheme and make any required amendments ahead of permanent changes later this year.
A spoesperson said: “We will monitor the temporary measures and their operation closely to assess effectiveness throughout the trial period. We also invite constructive feedback from residents and those who use the junction, and these comments will be considered before permanent changes are made. You can share your thoughts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.”
She added: “These works are part of longer term project to repair and restore the B-listed fountain, as well as minimising traffic dominance in the vicinity to make it safer and easier for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the junction and creating a more attractive gateway into Alexandria Main Street.”
