Councillor Gillian Owen hopes drives will slow down on South Road

Ellon and District Councillor Gillian Owen is appealing to all motorists using South Road in Ellon to obey the speed limit and to observe the new road layout by the new Ellon Academy.

Earlier this week, Councillor Owen said: “Many residents may not yet be aware that the 40mph zone has been extended beyond the new school junction.

“I would ask drivers to seriously consider this as the new campus is due to open on the 20th of August.”

She added: “As a regular user of this road I have noted that drivers have not yet realised that the speed signs have been moved.

“I am using this opportunity to draw this to everyone’s attention before our children start walking to the new academy.

“If you are travelling over 40mph you are being naughty!”
