S5W-22935: Dean Lockhart (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 1 May 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on introducing official road signage to warn road users of the presence of red squirrels.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 7 May 2019

The Scottish Government has approved official road signs warning road users of the presence of red squirrels for a number of locations across Scotland in the past and will approve similar applications at other locations that are considered appropriate.

Consideration will also be given to incorporating these signs into a future amendment of the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions, removing the need for authorisation.
