Residents may have noticed that the one way system on Raeburn Street has been reversed recently, so that vehicles can no longer access it from Raeburn Place but from Dean Street instead.
Hal Osler said, “I know this has surprised a number of residents but was desperately needed as there had been an increasing number of road safety issues for residents and pedestrians using Raeburn Street.
"The road is very narrow and does not have a defined pavement, just a shared surface. Unfortunately this led to a number of near misses as more and larger vehicles were starting to use the street as a short cut.
"The change of direction had been planned for some time, it has taken six years to bring forward.”
