Local people are being encouraged to take part in a consultation regarding changes to the layout of Sherry Drive in Hamilton.
There are four options to improve the road layout and enhance the safety of the road. They are:
- Replace all chicanes with 9 sets of speed cushions
- Remove all chicanes and provide four Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS) along the length of Sherry Drive
- Remove all chicanes and introduce seven narrow islands at points along Sherry Drive
- Remove all chicanes, introduce Part-time mandatory 20mph speed limit over the frontage of the primary school and a further two VAS downhill from the school. Also provide a central hatched area with coloured surfacing over the length of Sherry Drive from Nevis Avenue to Stewart Avenue
There will also be a drop-in event at St Mark’s Primary School on Wednesday 4 July from 1pm to 4pm and from 5pm to 8pm.
Councillor John Anderson, the chair of the council’s Community and Enterprise Committee, said: “Each option involves the removal of the chicanes with various road safety measures being introduced.
“We want to hear what you think is the best option.
“We have our own thoughts in terms of what will work best at the location, but it’s important that we get feedback before making a decision.
“Engaging with the local community is extremely important to us as a council and I hope as many people as possible take part in the survey and if they can make it, come along to the drop-in event as well.”
