Letter to Editor - No traffic lights at shared space until 2018 - but no delay, writes Councillor Murray
Sir, - After the report in last week’s paper I am writing to clarify that further consultation on Kirkintilloch town centre will not delay putting the traffic lights back. The council must honour the contract made with the contractor or pay penalties for any changes. The contract ends when the snagging period ends in June 2018 and the council has to wait until then before changes are made or risk uncontrolled costs. The SNP Leader of the Council, Gordan Low, knows this.
