Of course safety is our top priority, and we take our obligations seriously. Following concerns that were raised by Kirkpatrick Fleming and district community council about the safety of the junction, a comprehensive safety review was carried out. Although the review concluded that the junction layout, road traffic signs and road markings were appropriate and complied with current design standards, refurbishment of the road markings at the junction and the road traffic signs was completed in October 2016, and additional signage enhancements have recently been carried out.
