A roundabout on a busy Aberdeen road could be replaced with traffic lights if a local authority’s plans go ahead.
Aberdeen City Council plans to remove the roundabout where Forest Avenue crosses Cromwell Road and Union Grove and replace it with traffic lights.
The idea of removing the roundabout follows concerns from locals who have reported incidents where pedestrians crossing near the roundabout have been in danger.
On Cromwell Road there is a zebra crossing where pedestrians can cross, and while it meets regulations for being far enough from the roundabout, cars struggle to stop in time.
On the other side of the roundabout, children walking to and from Ashley Road School have to negotiate Union Grove and that has also created safety fears. A crossing patroller is at the site in the morning and afternoon.
Martin Greig, councillor for Hazlehead, Ashley and Queens Cross, said: “There has been a strong wish from the community to improve the crossing in the area. It is only a matter a time before something serious happens.”
