Moves to improve road safety following a fatality in Arbroath will see three crossing options put before councillors.
The communities committee will discuss the results of an investigation into the proposed installation of a signal-controlled pedestrian crossing on Keptie Street.
The move comes a decade after work got under way on a puffin crossing close to the junction with Catherine Street, before the project was halted because of concerns about its location.
The crossing was never completed and although some safety improvements were made, the issue tragically reared its head last September when 81-year-old Barbara Stormont was knocked down by a van, sustaining severe injuries from which she later died in hospital.
Councillors will be asked to decide upon a pedestrian crossing between Helen Street and Garden Street or between Garden Street and Lochlands Street and whether a dropped kerb crossing point should be provided near Garden Street.
The committee will also be asked to consider if any further consultation with affected premises in the vicinity of the potential crossings should be undertaken.
Ian Cochrane, the council’s head of technical and property services, said the financial implications of the consultation are estimated at £1,000 for the surveys and results analysis.
He said: “An analysis of road traffic accident statistics shows that there has been one fatal and one slight injury accident involving pedestrians on Keptie Street, Arbroath within the 100m survey area during the most recent three-year recording period.
“A survey of vehicle and pedestrian movements was carried out on Keptie Street in the vicinity of Helen Street and Garden Street, over a 10 hour standard assessment period.
“The survey was carried out on a weekday during school term time in March 2017 and was taken over a standard distance of 100m, centred on the most prevalent pedestrian desire line.
“The survey data showed that the location… does not currently justify the provision of a signal controlled pedestrian crossing in accordance with the agreed policy.
“The value falls within the range where Angus Council policy states that ‘detailed site evaluation will be carried out to determine a suitable solution which may include a central refuge; a zebra crossing; or a signalled controlled crossing’.”
