Improving traffic flow at Arbroath’s Westway

Published on Tuesday 20 August 2019

Phase two of a roads project aimed at improving traffic flow around the Westway/A92 roundabout at Arbroath will begin next month.

Work is due to start on Tuesday 10 September and will last for eight weeks.

The works will include the installation of traffic signals at the Westway Retail Park junction resurfacing, road markings and the formation of two lanes for the approach to the A92 Dundee Road roundabout.

The traffic signals will include Toucan crossings*. This will be a significant benefit to pedestrians and cyclists - linking the southbound bus stop on Westway with the retail park, providing a link across the retail park access road and improving the Westway crossing point for the National Cycle Network Route 1.

Temporary traffic management systems will be in place for the duration of the works. Westway will remain open and access to the retail park will be maintained throughout.

The project follows a traffic assessment that was carried out to identify improvements that could be made to traffic flow in the area. The first phase of the works was carried out late last year and again in February.

We would like to thank people in advance for their patience and understanding while this improvement work is carried out. Updates regarding changes to traffic management systems will be issued as the works progress.

*A Toucan crossing is a type of pedestrian crossing that also allows bicycles to be ridden across.
