You can request a pedestrian crossing facility through the Ayrshire Roads Alliance.
When a request is received, we will:
| Investigate the proposed location
| Investigate accident records for the area
| Investigate vehicle flow and speeds in the area
| Gauge the demand for a crossing within specified time periods
From these investigations, an assessment of the requested crossing will be made. Consultation will also take place with Police Scotland.
Contact us to request a pedestrian crossing facility.
