I have called on council to act to make it easier and safer for drivers to turn rights from Great Western Road at its junction with Anderson Drive and South Anderson Drive.
People have repeatedly asked for either right turn filters or separate light phases for eastbound and westbound traffic on Great Western Road to be introduced at the traffic lights at this junction. Making either one of these changes would make it easier to turn right from Great Western Road onto South Anderson Drive and Anderson Drive, improve road safety and reduce “rat running” on residential roads near the junction.
Every time I raised this on behalf of residents, Transport Scotland refused to act. The reason given was that it would delay traffic on Anderson Drive and South Anderson Drive.
Now that the Western Peripheral Route has opened and control of Anderson Drive has passed from Transport Scotland to the council, I have urged the council to take action and introduce either right turn filters or separate light phases for eastbound and westbound traffic on Great Western Road.
