MORAY COUNCIL HAS said that the public response to the survey aimed at informing the development of a new transport strategy for Elgin was “fantastic”.
The new strategy is being formed because a key component of the main strategy in recent years, the creation of a West Approach Road, was finally scrapped earlier this year.
Now the new six-week public survey exercise, which concluded on Sunday, attracted over 800 responses from individuals and organisations.
Nicola Moss, the Council’s transportation manager, said: “It is a fantastic result and gives us an understanding of people’s feelings and needs.
“The responses will be incorporated with technical data to help our plans for the future, which could range from additional road infrastructure, through improvements at junctions to public transport facilities.”
The next stage of the strategy will see it being presented to Councillors in October when it will again be subjected to further public consultation.
