To ask the Scottish Government what obligations local authorities have to ensure safe usage of single track roads in their areas and whether such obligations include the erection and maintenance of signs identifying passing places.


Answered by Derek Mackay (10/02/2016):

The Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 places the statutory responsibility for local roads, including traffic signs, improvement, maintenance and repair with local roads authorities. It is for the local authority to ensure its road network satisfies the requirements of relevant legislation and neither the Scottish Ministers nor the Scottish Government would become directly involved.
