ROSEANNA MEETS LOCAL TRADERS TO DISCUSSES ROADWORKS

Roseanna Cunningham MSP has spent time in Kinross speaking with local traders and roads engineers about the extent and timescale of the roadworks currently under way in the town centre.

 

She said:

 “With a large part of Kinross High Street closed to traffic, local businesses are suffering a real downturn in trade.

“Folk understand that the work which is being carried out will be positive for the town but at the moment the roadworks are having a serious impact.

“A lot of the local businesses I spoke to report that they are being badly hit as customers are avoiding the area and the current road closure is due to remain in place for the next five weeks with further works to follow.

“I spoke with the proprietor of one business who has been losing around £2000 a month in takings since the works started and another told me that she is losing around £2000 a week.

“I will be speaking with Perth & Kinross Council to see if there is any help available for the affected businesses to assist them in dealing with the big financial hit that they are sustaining.

“But, most importantly, I want to stress to people that the High Street remains open to pedestrians and the shops there are most definitely open for business.”
