Following extensive public engagement, we are pleased to hear that the work in Alyth square is to be completed later this month. The Council has worked closely with Alyth Development Trust, Alyth Community Council and the wider community to develop the project which has seen an investment of around £500,000 in upgrading the town square. This complements the works done to replace the bridges following the flooding.
The aim of the improvements are to:
- Create a square that is pedestrian friendly, with improved access for all pedestrians, wider pavements, reduced street clutter and dropped kerbs at key locations.
- Create a flexible space which would enable opportunities for outdoor events to be held in the Square whilst recognising the everyday need for car parking.
- Improve bus access, pedestrian safety and passenger boarding facilities
