Finstown Traffic Management Study

About the Project

Orkney Islands Council, with the support of SYSTRA Ltd, are working together to undertake a traffic management study in the village of Finstown. The study has been initiated due to road safety concerns raised by residents of Finstown in relation to driver behaviour and the existing transport infrastructure within the village.

The traffic management study aims to identify a selection of potential traffic management interventions that reduce speeds and increase road safety within Finstown.

The traffic management study builds on the transport proposals outlined for Finstown in the 2010 Three Villages Masterplan. The masterplan proposals for Finstown included items that addressed traffic dominance, land allocation for new uses and the provision of open space facilities.

The Three Villages Masterplan can be accessed via the link below.
