Tayside regional Council is proposing one-way traffic, eastwards, in the slip-road between Brechin’s River Street and East Mill Road which form a Y-junction with Brechin Bridge. Since installation of traffic lights at the junction there have been complaints of vehicles travelling from East Mill Road to River Street jumping the queue at lights, travelling in the wrong lane towards the slip-road which then they use to get on to River Street, by-passing the lights. They then filter through the River Street traffic to get into their proper lane.
