Residents and visitors to Maybole are being urged to have their say on improvement plans for the town's High Street. 

Council bosses say the current town centre is in poor condition, with narrow pavements making pedestrian navigation uncomfortable and, at times, unsafe.

South Ayrshire Council says the opening of the new Maybole bypass presents an opportunity to make significant improvements to the town's high street.

There will be more space for pedestrians and those using sustainable forms of travel, and these will be balanced with vehicular access.

Ayr Advertiser:

Current concept proposals for Maybole High Street include the introduction of give-way sections to reduce vehicle speeds, which will create more pavement space. 

New surfaces will be introduced to School Vennel and the Town Hall square and car parking area. 

The footway will be maximised to improve pedestrian amenity and increase opportunities for businesses to utilise pavement space. 

At Maybole railway station, there will be improved connection with Greenside.

Parking will be removed from next to the railway footbridge, and high quality surfacing will be introduced to improve the station. 

Improved crossing points will also be introduced on Culzean Road, and further upgrades will be made to the street to improve connection to the high street.
