While Dianne Beagrie has welcomed the crossing she is still urging drivers to drive with care along the stretch of road.

And she has expressed thanks to Michelle and Linda Geddes who highlighted the issues on the road to here.

Dianne said: “Adults and children have, for a long time, had to struggle to get across this very busy road.

“I’d like to thank the roads team at Aberdeenshire Council for listening and acting on my concerns.

"This is the first countdown crossing in Aberdeenshire, however I would still ask that drivers slow down on this stretch of road at all times. The safety of our community is paramount.”
