Kerse Road Stirling - Road Closure for New Bridge

The A905 Kerse Road will close for six months from April until the end of October 2018 while engineers demolish and replace the road bridge over the railway to the south of Stirling station. The new structure will deliver a significant increase in the width of the carriageway offering the potential for the council to add a third lane in the future to meet Stirling’s growing traffic needs.

The bridge work is part of a wider programme of improvements on the Stirling line ahead of the electrification of the route as part of a Scottish Government investment being delivered by Network Rail. Electrification of central Scotland’s rail network will reduce journey times to Glasgow and Edinburgh, increase capacity on peak services and provide longer, greener trains.

Network Rail have organised a series of series drop-in sessions are detailed below and people are invited to hear more about the project.

Highway Code rules regarding cycle lanes

Concern was raised at the June meeting about what were considered to be the potential dangers resulting from the new cycle lanes in Milton of Buchanan. The Community Council brought these concerns to the attention of the relevant bodies such as Drymen Community Development Trust, Sustrans, Stirling Council and the National Park Authority, as a result of which dotted white lines have been laid in the centre of the road on the bends at either end of the village.
