ENHANCED: A new bus station has been proposed.

Fraserburgh and district councillor Charles Buchan updated Fraserburgh’s community council on the progress of the proposed new bus station offices in
Fraserburgh.

Reporting after the community council meeting, the councillor, who was elected this year, told the Fraserburgh Herald:
“The council has been persuaded to try to find a budget for enhanced shelter for passenger use when the waiting room is locked, with extended pavement, raised kerb, and also at the other side of the road.

“The waiting room is now to be open from 6:30am to office closing time.

“It was decided not to employ anti-seagull netting as the building is too low to be attractive for nesting, and the cost of releasing trapped birds.

“No exterior access to the toilet is envisaged.”

Other items discussed at the last community council meeting of the night, the Fraserburgh Herald was told, included suggestions that the speed limit near Maconnochie Road could be reduced near the new sports and leisure facility, and the concern that local joggers need to wear fluorescent markings to increase their visibility at
night.

The community council will return in the new year.
