Progress on Gritting and Guild Street

Progress on Gritting and Guild Street

We have some progress on winter gritting and on reopening the lane from the harbour to Guild Street. And it is some good news from the council! They have agreed that the winter services plan should include the main cycle routes for this coming winter. Officers have been asked to work out how they can do this and have been asked to report back to councillors. This has been the result of consistent pressure from ACF members and a deputation to the council committee, with vital support from Cllr Ross Thomson. The other good news is that the council has agreed to reopen the onward lane from the harbour to Guild Street. This should be happening in the new year and means that cyclists are no longer faced with a lengthy detour up Marischal Street. Again Cllr Ross Thomson was the main force behind this move but thanks to all the members of the Enterprise, Planning and Infrastructure committee for their support on both these measures.
