Detrunked A737 in Dalry: EIR release
FOI reference: FOI/202000054527
Date received: 22 Jun 2020
Date responded: 16 Jul 2020
Information requested

I require the monitoring data if possible. Can you supply this please as these signs are being regularly activated.


As the information you have requested is ‘environmental information’ for the purposes of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs), we are required to deal with your request under those Regulations. We are applying the exemption at section 39(2) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), so that we do not also have to deal with your request under FOISA.

This exemption is subject to the ‘public interest test’. Therefore, taking account of all the circumstances of this case, we have considered if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption. We have found that, on balance, the public interest lies in favour of upholding the exemption, because there is no public interest in dealing with the same request under two different regimes. This is essentially a technical point and has no material effect on the outcome of your request.

1. Please find the information you request in Annexes A, B and C to this request.
Annex A is the data captured for the A737 northbound at Lidl.
Annex B is the data captured for the A737 southbound at the entrance to the village.
Annex C is the data captured for the A737 southbound at the exit of the village.
