Proposals to temporarily ban traffic at Ayr Esplanade
Council proposing to temporarily ban vehicles at Ayr Esplanade
Temporary measures could include removing parking to create extra footway space, introducing speed restrictions, providing a segregated cycle lane, enforcing existing parking restrictions, providing physical distancing information or providing additional cycle parking.
The council stated :
The Esplanade in Ayr is already a popular destination. During the Covid-19 lockdown there has been a significant increase in people walking and cycling there. The Esplanade provides on-street car parking next to the beach which on good weather days is very busy. The temporary closure of the Esplanade to vehicles would provide a significant increase in available space for people to walk and cycle while safely maintaining physical distancing.
