Aberdeenshire Council have burnt off some of the yellow lines recently painted in Auchenblae after a complaint from a member of the public.

The Auchenblae Traffic order was given the go ahead back in July this year at a cost of around £600.

Restrictions are now in place at Mackenzie Avenue and Monboddo Street/Burnett Street.

Aberdeenshire council have explained that they have burnt off some of the yellow lines on Mckenzie Avenue as they may have ‘undermined the enforceability’ of the restrictions.

Head of Roads and Landscape Services Philip McKay said: “The recently concluded traffic management review in Auchenblae sought to find a balance between public safety and convenience for local residents who rely upon on-street parking.

“While on site, we made judgement that the formal order provided sufficient flexibility to lengthen one section of waiting restriction by around four metres.

“However, upon reflection that decision may well have undermined the enforceability of the waiting restriction.

“We have therefore rectified the matter and the markings on McKenzie Avenue have been amended to reflect the measurements stated in the original traffic order.

“For more information on Traffic Orders, members of the public can contact traffic.order@aberdeenshire.gov.uk.”

In Scotland, the local authority has the responsibility for imposing traffic orders and restrictions due to the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.
