Space for people

Ayrshire Roads Alliance successfully bid for Spaces for People funding from Sustrans which allows temporary measures to be put in place to make it easier for people who are walking and wheeling to physically distance during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Projects starting soon will be trial School Streets part time road closures on roads near schools and a trial segregated cycle lane scheme.

When lockdown was announced on Monday 23 March 2020, all outstanding Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) were placed on hold. The Parking Service has now returned to normal and notice processing procedures restarted on Monday 29 June 2020.
