Region’s roads are getting busier

TRAFFIC levels are on the up, official figures have revealed.

Statistics from Transport Scotland show traffic counters on the region’s roads have detected increases at both Cairnryan and Locharbriggs.

The two systems are the only loops in the region and both reveal sharp declines and steady increases during the lockdown period.

The system on the A701 at Locharbriggs recorded 8670 movements on March 16, but the figure dropped by many thousands, with the lowest being just 1523 on March 29. However, the most recent figure, from June 8, was 5643 – showing travel is increasing, but still far from the pre-lockdown level. At Cairnryan, there were 3692 movements on March 16 and at its lowest was 960 on April 11. And on June 8, there were 2631 vehicles recorded.
