New road markings have been painted in the centre of Campbeltown ahead of a one-way traffic system being implemented.

Argyll and Bute Council has begun work in preparation for introducing the new traffic regulation order that was agreed in March last year, which will see a one-way system come into operation in the town centre.

The roads involved in the one-way system and the permitted direction of travel on them is as follows: Burnside Street, from its junction with Lorne Street to its junction with Longrow, north-easterly; Union Street, from its junction with Cross Street to its junction with Bolgam Street, north-easterly; Kirk Street, from its junction with Main Street to its junction with St John Street, south-easterly; Bolgam Street, from its junction with Main Street to its junction with Burnbank Place, north-westerly; Shore Street, from its junction with Main Street to its junction with St John Street, south-easterly; Cross Street, from its junction with Main Street to its junction with Union Street, north-westerly; Longrow South, from its junction with Main Street to its junction with Burnside Street, north-westerly; and Burnbank Street, from its junction with Longrow to its junction with Kinloch Road, north-easterly.

A council spokesperson said: ‘The majority of the lining works have been completed. The road markings for the one-way system won’t be installed until the one-way signage has been erected. We are awaiting delivery of specialist poles for this illuminated signage. Once they arrive they will be erected and the one way system will be implemented.’
