Roundabout to be ditched

A ROUNDABOUT in Fountainbridge is to be replaced with a new signal junction and toucan crossings as part of works to improve facilities for pedestrians in the area.

The construction work is set to cost £310,000.

The work has been advertised to contractors and is expected to begin later this year.

Elsewhere in Drum Brae Drive in Corstorphine a puffin crossing will be installed along with a toucan crossing in nearby Meadow Place Road.
